reflections 2009: one. two.

reflections 2009

i was
sitting here
by the christmas tree
and i
planned to write
a whiny post
about
my shortcomings
and
being overwhelmed
when
i was drawn back
to
this beautiful post
by shari
and thought
that instead
i could reflect
on the good
that came out
of
this past year.

so i will follow
shari's lead...

. . . . .

no. 1: favorite trip

i was lucky enough to travel
quite a bit this year.
but i always return
again and again
to memories
of my trip
to sea ranch each year.

searanch: grub jumped

perhaps it is
because
it's the only time
i can relax
and just be.
perhaps
it's because i am
a water baby
always anxious
to return to the sea.
this year
my dear friend
joined us
for a few days
by the sea.
i love that place.
and i cherish
the memories
of each year i
get to return.


no. 2: favorite restaurant experience


searanch: A16 dessert

although
every time
i have been
to ubuntu
it amazes me,
i'd have to say
that my lunch
at a-16 with
grub this spring
was the
most memorable.
i love to share
a these experiences
with grub
because we can
get completely
absorbed
in enjoying
the food
and the experience.
we don't have to worry
about conversation
or if the other person
is having a good time-
we can just enjoy.
maybe
it was memorable
because
nate appleman and crew
were
breaking down a pig
while we ate.
maybe it was
the unusual
and delicious
bottle of wine,
the perfect pizza,
or
the weird
icy
but
incredibly tasty
dessert.
i can't decide.

. . .

what are
your reflections
on the year past?

more soon.

have you seen
habit
this month.
it gives me
a little joy
each day.

Shari has a way of making one remember the great things in life, doesn't she?
Happy Holidays to you and Grub, my dear!

Happy holidays to you and your sweet ones near and far... I have so enjoyed reading your year that has been (all the more so because if I were to pen a post this evening it would one of grumbles. Your post has lifted my spirits.) and I am keen to see what 2010 brings.
