Google+ What I Made Today: a break in tradition

a break in tradition

Yesterday I made a decision. I decided to make a break from tradition. The elements that work with weather (with whether?) played a role in this decision, in this cutting away from patterns past. I will be staying put for the holiday of Thanksgiving. I will not be traveling the highways west and north. I will not be sharing this holiday with my mother. I am relieved and delighted, and I am disappointed and saddened.

Yesterday was an emotionally exhausting day for me. In it I faced a number of realizations about myself and about my relationships with those I love ... here and there. I'm still digesting this seemingly simple decision and act, just as I will be digesting the riches and richness of the upcoming celebratory food of Thanksgiving.

More later.

Old habits die hard, but what they make space for with their passing can be even more beautiful.

Best to you at this celebration of harvest and gratitude.
