The time “in-between”

open door with light behind

What has been different about this holiday period, which I usually find quite a difficult time, is the peace and joy I’ve found. I haven’t felt the struggle of being alone while everyone is away — in fact I’ve enjoyed the space and it has been evenly broken up by visitors. Even the days over Christmas (I can even write it now!) flowed without incident. This period is such a great “in-between” time. It’s 2014 becoming 2015. The days don’t matter (everyday’s a Saturday). And there’s plenty of time to do stuff, yet nothing has to be done.
