Odd things happen to all of us on our way through life without our noticing for a time that they have happened. - J.M. BarrieThis week's quote from Peter Pan captures that moment when it suddenly occurs to you that you haven't necessarily been noticing what's going on around you.
Sometimes it is a good surprise, a blossoming friendship or that your hair has finally grown out of that hideous cut you thought was a good idea.
Sometimes it is not so good, like relationships that have drifted apart or a check engine light that you've ignored for too long.
And sometimes, sometimes it is just weird things that pop up right at the edge of your vision that take a while to register.
As i finish writing my New Year's cards -in the mail tomorrow; maybe- i am trying to take thoughtful stock of my life, finally see those pieces that have gone unnoticed for too long and devise appropriate action, if necessary.
I love the new start of the beginning of the year.
