New Year’s Day Respite

img_1616My 2017 started with a ride in the snow – several inches of it – making for some epic cardio.  The impetus behind the ride wasn’t exercise, however, it was for a mindful escape from my relentless to-do list, a list that is ready to quantify my worth as a human being dependent upon how much of it is actually attended to prior to the end of the holiday season.img_1622

I found a quiet spot with a bench, and sat for a few minutes to view the river at its best: when it is frigid and slow, the surface as smooth as coffee table glass.

This cold morning will be complemented by a warm evening: there is a roast in the oven; a fireplace to be lit; and a bottle of red to be savoured.
