The second week of Advent.
December brings about eclectic emotions: the closing of the year, looking forward to Christmas; farewells, parties, packing, planning. All these bring my preferred zen existence grinding to a halt. All of a sudden, there is so much to do & it feels like there’s not enough time to do it.
For more than 12 hours this past weekend, our Broadband was down (country-wide network failure, apparently). I was flummoxed by how much my life was interrupted; I didn’t realise how much of my daily activity involved having wifi: no WordPress, no Instagram, no Netflix, no Printer! I was understandably aggravated & irritated until Younger Daughter put it all in perspective for me: “Never mind, let’s play games that don’t need wifi.” No need to sweat the little stuff.
It is time to take a deep breath. And breathe.
The second candle is lit. For Peace.
