Today is the very end of the year. Or that's what they tell me. But, if you consider the year gone, and the year to come, today is actually the middle. It's right at the centre of the past year, and the future year. Of the familiar and the unfamiliar.
There's a trail of old, used days behind me. And in front, an allowance of 365 new days to spend as I please. All I can do is try to spend them well.
I'm going to dip my toes in a few new ponds in the new year. Rough ideas, which have been skittering haphazardly in my head, are now starting to make a queue. I want to see where they go, these ideas that were born in the old year, and are standing today, in the middle, about to become something real. I like that I'm about to surprise myself again. In 2011, I surprised myself by starting this blog.
Thank you, so very much, for reading what I write, for leaving comments, and sending emails. Through this little space, I've met some lovely people, and made some good friends.
I wish you all a wonderful middle today. And much happiness in the year that starts tomorrow.
