Another trip around the sun




It is on January 4th, just two weeks away, that the earth comes closest to the sun and we start another of our year-long orbits.

January 4th marks not only a destination (the earth closest to sun), but a continuing event: starting-over.

This great celestial event is also a time of much social busy-ness, with a multitude of celebrations of various sorts so it is a challenge to find the time to be still, and quiet, in solitude, to focus and prepare to create our destiny in the year ahead.

What an excellent time to be rethinking our achievements over the past year in our trip around the sun, and, realizing we are about to get a cosmic do-over (for the 4 billionth time), we get to choose what we will do with our lives during the coming year.

Let us choose wisely...

:)
