My week of solitude has drawn to an end and life is gearing back up to return to somewhat normal.
Today is a day of cooking, cleaning and mingling with friends. Tomorrow marks the beginning of a new work-year with my day job.
It’s going to be difficult to focus on my job, though, because next week Rob returns for his two weeks of R & R and I’m terribly excited about that. So life is going to go on a brief hiatus for me while he’s here.
I’m sure the two weeks are going to fly by even as I’m digging in heels trying to slow it down. I’ll be back to writerly and mundane business on the 25th of January.
I’m not sure when the Chinese New Year began, but 2012 is a Year of the Dragon. I was born in a Year of the Dragon. Seems like that combination surely ought to mean a powerful year is ahead for me, so that’s the mind-set I’m going forward with.
For a while now I’ve felt on the edge of something big, the cusp of great change. This is the year. I feel it in my bones.
Edit: According to the information at the website Janet gave me in her comment, not only was I born in the year of the Dragon, but my DAY of birth is a Dragon day, and since this year is also a Dragon year – I will be having a TRIPLE Dragon year.
That means really, really, really good! (at least by my interpretation)
