Confines

Finding the inner circle

At the turning of the year our collective reassessment tends to get a sarcastic nod, but that need not be the only approach to the gradual return of the light and the ancient season of introspection that nature offers us.

If I can take anything forward with me from the challenges of the past year, it will be the clarity I’m aware of regarding limitations and the illusory nature of our expectations.  The orbits that make up the patterning in our lives have limited variance, but that fact does not take away one iota from the efficacy we can have within the confines of our lives.

And moving forward, the goal is simple: consistent practice.
