And just like that…

it's winter. Well, maybe not the real winter - at least my calendar says it's not really winter - yet and yet... The holiday season is upon us; holiday music and decorations, everywhere. It always takes me by surprise - I'm never quite ready. I am looking forward to the holidays, though, bidding adieu to 2018. And as the holidays approach, I've begun thinking about 2019, changes and transitions for the year ahead - planning and dreaming... and pondering a new journal…
