And now let us welcome the New Year, full of things that never were. ~ Rainer Maria Rilke
We are only a week into the new year, and already it is full of things we might well wish never were! Politically, governmentally, executive orderly and so on…Or the weather! The bomb cyclone, and now the frigid cold!
And yet (I choose) to see a whole bunch of light beyond that door. Through that doorway, that portal of a new year that represents new beginnings. No matter if some things feel old already, and dark, there is light beyond. Lots and lots of light. I can see that too.
This is an actual door at the end of the hallway in my Brooklyn apartment. It opens into the living room, which opens into the kitchen, which opens into what once was a maid’s room and is now my office. And there the apartment ends. But there’s a window at the back, which looks out and up. As I do. And I hope you do too.
Meanwhile, keep warm!
