Rounding up the year 2

All the good bits of course

Even when life throws up all those difficulties there are always the good bits full of joy. I’ve had my quota of some of the best moments with friends and family over the last twelve months. After the hard graft of finishing my MA and digging deep into the meaning of life, you know all that heavy brain, conscience heart soul retrospective, my natural fulcrum is to smile at the world and laugh as much as I possibly can and to meditate on all that’s positive in and around me and how free I feel at my ripening age and how bloody blessed I am to be loved and liked by some wonderful people, I really couldn’t ask for more than that except wild landscapes and coastal paths, I just love them, they bring me alive in the moment and all that fresh air. I’ve danced all my life one way or another and I haven’t danced much this last year, but have gone back to it recently and it’s like riding a bike, except my joints object, so my learning curve is to be kind to my body and just slow down a tiny bit. I don’t know what I would do without my wizard, he is truly my best friend and we teach each other so much. I don’t know what I’d be without the constancy of my three sons, I’m so proud of them and only wish them a happy life. I know the new year will be mixed, they always are but I really look forward to new adventures in my final year of being sixty something.
