Beginning of Hibernation
The winter is rapidly approaching, the leaves are falling and turning brown, the air is cold and crisp and evening comes around much sooner. This pending season is filled with excitement and anticipation. I feel the evolution of our cocoon unraveling the beauty within. It hasn’t happened yet, although the eagerness of it all fills us with happiness and stress. At this time, I know something is going to change for the best for us, but I just don’t know what it is. I’m ok with that. Really. Our goals are simple from our point of view, but for some reason difficult to execute. Find meaningful work. The realities of that simple statement or the complexities of the human mind, for whatever reason make that so damn hard. Both of our fields have so many paths we can choose from, so knowing what it is you want to do doesn’t necessarily answer the previous statement. The dawn of the dark and cold will allow us to hopefully answer that question and re-center ourselves individually and together. The bounty of spring will begin anew, just like it does every year, only this time we too will feel refreshed.
