new day, new year, same old blogger

I feel like I have been riding a rocket since moving to NYC and starting work at the Seminary.

Having been off for more than a week, I have had an opportunity to reflect on last year.

I am mostly without dirt on my hands these days ... there are some volunteer opportunities at the seminary that I hope to take advantage of this next year.

Living where one works means that I can go a couple of weeks at a time without leaving a 3 block area of Chelsea. This is not healthy. I am committed to having non-seminary experiences, going to the movies once a week with a friend, and finally starting to do some museum visits, something I haven't had much time to do until now.

Now that the holiday season is over, I think there will be a period when getting around Manhattan will be a bit easier.

I found myself being at home most of the time this last year, with going from work on one book to another. It was a mistake, and I'm still exhausted.

But today, it's 73 degrees right now, and I went to Powder Conservation area and saw trees full of cardinals, nuthatches, sparrows, finishes, jays, mockingbirds, a hawk in her next, and a falcon riding the winds.

What a welcome back.

Hi, Shelley!
