Reverb 13 Day !

So here we are at the end of another year.

As said on Kat's site :
Reverb is a reflective writing challenge held in December every year. It provides a sacred space for participants to celebrate the successes and honour the challenges of the year that’s passing, as well as plant the seeds for a rich and rewarding new year.

Reverb was started by Gwen Bell in 2009 as a writing challenge for bloggers to consider the reverberations they sent out into the universe. Gwen passed the challenge on to individuals to host in 2011 and a number of bloggers around the world have since taken up the baton. This makes for a pretty exciting and festive time, and it’s not unusual for bloggers to participate in multiple Reverbs at once!

The question for today is - "How do you feel, on this first day, in your mind? In your body? In your heart? In your soul?"

Well today is the first day of Summer here in Queensland, Australia.  Summer is the month I have always loved,time on the beach with the hot sun beating into you, laughter and fun and extended family time.

Though as I age, I am finding the heat a little too hot and the days a little too long. The extended family have all gone on the four winds and what is left is the remains of what was, but we try to carry on the tradition, if just a little slower.

Enough waxing lyrical, though truthful. 

I am tired and glad the new year is almost here. I wish for more time with family and friends. and  more time to just  be me.

If you would like to join in with us, fell free to drop by Kat's blog, "I Saw You Dancing" and just sign up.

I know that feeling well, Shaz! Hope you manage to carve out some time in amongst the craziness to savour precious family time. And time for you. x

Nicely said Sharyn, especially the part about being back to what was. Here's to a mild summer and some time with family.
