The year end seems to come to me in a rush so I find myself taking stock in the new year -listing the events of the old. I was lucky to get away for 10 days of relaxation where I did my yoga practice daily while listening to TED talks and loved this one by Dan Gilbert. Listen to his provocative first test question to the audience. The happiness we create from things about which we had no choice is richer than you might imagine.
So honour the old and honour your obsessions.
I do not yet know why it is that traffic cones move me so. I just know that they do. The cone on my Xmas ecard was not the first traffic cone I ever shot.
I will see my watch and stay standing
place marker, guard
wherever I am placed
in sun and dark
to bear brunt
of mud, fume, fury,
