Winter is my favorite season.
There's something ... magical ... about the colors, the light, the slowing down of life, ...
Although, this year, it seems like the trees have held on to their leaves longer than usual.
Or maybe I just forgot, and they did the same thing last year ?
I also noticed quite a few trees losing their leaves in a top-down pattern. Another thing I can't recall seeing last year ...
This year, I'm not going to do much in the week between Christmas & New Year (work-wise).
I've started rereading the "Wheel of Time" series (by Robert Jordan).
There are 14 books, of which the last 3 have been written/finalized by Brandon Sanderson. Wikipedia tells me they add up to the nice total of 11,898 pages. =)
I'm actually really enjoying the books, more so than the first time, about 10 years ago. The story and the concepts seem ... relevant ... somehow.
I've also been listening to my favorite opera ("Parsifal" by Wagner).
I can't help but marvel at how one person created this masterpiece out of ... nothing. Sometimes, we, as a species, can be quite amazing.
I bought a new Christmas mug. It makes me feel happy. =)
It's been pretty cold for about a week. No snow, but the garden looked beautiful. My fig tree seemed particularly happy ...
I noticed a strange looking cloud, the other day. Completely flat.
Is the universe trying to tell me something ?
No breakable ornaments in the tree, this year.
It seems like the sensible thing to do ... =)
Happy holidays !
