What A Difference Twenty-Four Hours Makes

Yesterday morning, around ten o’clock, the skies were serene with an almost imperceptible breeze.  


Later in the afternoon, the sky turned grey, and a passing rain shower glided by.


The skies became clear again, and the sunset was breathtaking.


Now, a day later, around ten o’clock, the rains returned.


The breeze today found its strength in the far-flung outer bands of Hurricane Irma, and it’s robust.  I can hear the wind hitting the house in unrhythmic gusts.  I just learned that Irma slammed a place called Cudjoe Key in the Florida Keys this morning.

What a difference twenty-four hours makes.

Citrus, Crochet, and the Cubs

The Celebrated Satsuma

The Celebrated Satsuma

Today I got a satsuma from someone I know .  It was freshly-picked this morning and still has its stem and leaves on.  I like the taste of satsumas – kind of orange-like, but not.  This is a real treat.  Sometime I’d like to get enough of them to make marmalade.

As part of my downsizing project in this Year of Change, I’m in the middle of going through all the doilies I crocheted years ago.  So many years ago, they are now considered vintage.  I decided to keep all those my aunt crocheted, plus only a few of ones I made.  If the majority of them are sitting in a box, why store them when others can enjoy them?

The Chicago Cubs finally won the World Series after all these years.  The final game sure was a nail-biter, and there even was a rain delay to add to the drama.   Hey! Hey!  Holy Mackerel!  No doubt about it!  It’s about time for that win, in this Year of Change.

We all could use a winning year, don’t you think?

A Year of Change

This morning I took a walk and enjoyed the crispy November air.  It felt fresh, and it revitalized me.   And then I thought –

November?   Already!

This past year – yet, not quite over – was a busy time for me.  Some busyness came about deliberately and some naturally evolved.  Being occupied led to simplifying life, and it remained an on-going mission, particularly since the summer.  Someone once told me, “People would be surprised at how little they actually need to live.”

Indeed.

Relationships are the natural ebb and flow of life.  I am always am a firm believer in that you cannot force a relationship.  If it’s meant to be, it will be, whether blood relations or not.  It all evens out the way it’s supposed to be.

I’ve gotten so disorganized in the past couple of years, and I lost my bearing.  There were some damnable problems with people that threw off my balance.  Happily, I’m righted again, finally.

More travelling happened this past year, too. It was good to get away, see different sights, and become more knowledgeable in these travels.

During much of my free time, I wrote more than ever.  I published three books of poetry this year – and if you picked up any of my four books, thank you!  Meanwhile, I’m still working on a larger book that should be ready next year.  I can only write when the spirit moves me.  All writers experience writer’s block from time to time.  It’s natural.

Yet, with all the events this year, this coming year is my “Year of Change.”

This is going to be a first-class year for me, filled with lots of changes for the good.

I’m looking forward to it and sharing it with you.  Stay tuned.
