I woke up this morning with a funny feeling inside. I went for a 5,000 step walk and ordered some yummy egg sandwich. Eating eggs for breakfast is quite unlike me. I’m not a breakfast person in so much that I prefer heavier foods. Thus, if I can eat a burger or curry for breakfast, I am indeed a breakfast person. Thus, my egg breakfast was truly a culinary adventure for me. Although, it’s not such a big deal.
I set about paying some bills and completing some chores. And, indeed they were chores. No wonder I had put off many things for a few weeks. Actually, I have been putting off many things. My motivation to do tedious things just hasn’t been there.
Then, as I opened some of my remaining unopened Christmas gifts I looked over at my Christmas tree. I shook my head and reached out to it. I then proceeded to take it down. This may not seem odd but it was. I have often left my Christmas tree up till mid-February or even March. I like the ornaments and the lights. They bring cheer and I’m a bit lazy as well. But this time, I took my Christmas tree down the first week of January. I felt a twinge of sadness and resignation.
This was not a normal past year. This new year seems to be on its own odd path. And, I need to see what new paths lie ahead. Down came the tree earlier than usual. New traditions. New franeworks. Got to push new lens onto the world.
