Holiday Reflect

Where has the year gone? It seems like it was just yesterday that we were celebrating the holiday with family and here we are again. I find myself thinking about time, how quickly it seems to be going. I have these thoughts of D and me getting older and looking back on this year and the ones before it, the ones to come. I have such a long memory so I know that I'll remember all of these wonderful times that we have together but I find myself, more recently, taking a "time-out" so to speak, to record things in my mind. Having the blog helps but I don't talk about everything here. So, these days, really over the course of the last few months, as I am increasingly aware of the passage of time, I take random moments that I know I never want to forget, and sort of record them.

Usually they are little things, stolen moments, like the mornings we wake up before the alarm and we both know it's early and we can communicate without ever even saying a word. On those mornings it's completely quiet but we can hear the bus stopping to pick up or drop off passengers or the delivery trucks zooming down the avenue. You rarely hear any actual people - you just hear all of their activity before the rest of the city gets up. Or, when we sit in the living room on a Sunday listening to music, drinking coffee and reading the paper. Or, when we have a date night with lots of wine and good food...our date nights, after seven years, usually involve a lot of red wine and delicious, thin crust pizza at our local place. Or, in the summer when we go for walks on Sunday afternoons. Or, when we actually have uninterrupted time in the car. Or, or, or...So many...

I'm reflecting a lot - it happens to me, like I am sure it happens to many people - at birthdays, anniversaries, and, of course, the holidays.

I'm looking forward to this Christmas/Channukah/New Year season. Now it's nearly over and, I'm looking forward to the many, many, many, many more to come. In the meantime, I'm closing my eyes for a little minute so that I can be sure to never forget this one.

It's Christmas Time in the City

A merry and a happy to you!
