It's raining here today. A constant rain like in a movie. There's something so romantic to me about sitting here at the computer looking out the old wooden window at the wetness covering the lawn, the trees, the streets.
The power has gone out a couple of times already today which makes me think of the book I'm reading and how that will be the next thing to do after a nice hot shower - sitting curled up in a chair reading words to drown in.
This is, indeed the last day of the year, a year of completion whether we think of it that way or not. Father time gives us no choice but to pass one year to the next on this day. It's up to our own selves to finish things we've begun and follow through with things of importance while shedding the heavy burdens holding us back (as stated yesterday).
It's a constant resolution of consistence that my mind desperately tries to remember - to be the most positive I can be. While the yesteryears and memories of negative ghosts might flood my mind at times, I tell myself to take cover and ward them off by seeking the positive light of the moment. So what of that particular moment is a bleack one? What if I become trapped beneath a sheet of dark cloth only to see the wretched face of a grudge that refuses to leave?
Sometimes the solution, I think is nothing. To do - nothing. Ghosts of grudge and anger live within us all - we must come face to face with them from time to time. But it doesn't mean we need to talk to it, to look at it, to acknowledge how our seeing it's face drags out all memories of it's pain and anger. Close my eyes, I do. Turn away, yet stand erect to show my strength. I move on ahead.
One cannot forget the yesteryear, from it we learn how to live our lives. How to better our lives through mistakes and efforts rewarded, both.
My wishes are the same as always. Positive. Happy. Learing. Enjoying. Prospering from these things. Alowing others to learn from my example and to seek others I may learn from as well.
Happy New Year 2006.
