I walked across the bridge last night and saw the frozen expanse of the river creep towards the bright lights of the city. The barren 'scape held a quiet one often sees this January time. Despite the stillness, I felt an incredible openness - the vast winter sky and river mirrored the great expectation I felt in my heart about the coming weeks. I am starting something new, inching forward towards greater change. I feel this change echoing through my body as cogs and gears, unused for so long, take motion once more. I feel more life flowing through me than I have felt in a long time. I am excited and also at peace with the current of things.
