New decade—high hopes—renewed energy and resolve
but scatterbrained, heart-splintered:
a piece spirited to Sacred Stone Camp;
thirty pieces in Thanksgiving Facebook posts.
Biggest, most cohesive chunks with Jean and family:
a week in Ashland with California childcare weekend,
two weeks in Maui, and sweet summer end Greenbelt days.
Profoundly grateful for Joyce & Dave’s Greenbelt move,
also our second joint vacation, this year at Deal Island.
Kept journaling jumbled daystream emotions;
finished Mullstream Psalm series and started
these year by year life reflections.
It was time to seek peace and pursue it,
time to forgive seventy times seven.
