We sloths slept in. Frankly we both woke around five our time then faded back into the arms of sleep till eightish. A time change and laziness will do that.
Toast and decaf…with lots of butter, and news from our flooded town….the flooded west coast and flooded friends too. The disembarkation talk then time to download pictures before lunch. Such a delightful slow day at sea. Outside the observation deck and library windows the sea is a dark blue endlessly wrapping itself around our hull.
I admit that I’ll miss this self-contained environment, this being waited on hand and foot, these acres of new books just a fingertip away. Then again, tho I have loved being spoiled, I have missed my home.

It was hurry up and wait. We didn’t mind. I did mind the long search for our baggage…parts here and parts there. The taxi. The house sparkling in the sunshine. Home. Laundry. Cold rooms. Mexican food for dinner. I had to laugh.

Happy New Year to All of You
My brain creeps toward the new….new stirrings , new motivations, and new awakenings. I want to go back to the formal writing classes that I’d abandoned for the poetry workshops. I want to write, not necessarily deep meaningful anythings, but while I send my last years words out into the ether, I want to be producing new thinkings of any form. If it takes the poking of familiar friends to do this, so be it.
The Geezer is happily settled into working way too many hours. He likes his job, his wrecks, all the stuff he works too many hours doing. Employee of the month, they told him yesterday. He completed more files than anybody AND was gone a week on a cruise.
We both need to remember Rule 62….”don’t take ourselves too seriously.”
I kick myself to jump start me into something new while finishing the old.
What are you doing that’s new this coming year?
