My perception of this year is distorted. At times it seems to have flown by and I struggle to put things in order because the normal landmarks haven't been there to space things out. Yet I also feel as though we have been stuck in a 'time-bog' that stretches away in all directions. Both can, I suppose, be traced back to the formlessness of it all. I wonder how I will see it all when we have moved on further. Even my concerted efforts to stay 'in the moment' and appreciate the little things haven't given me a coherent yearscape. When I come to read my diary in years to come I wonder what I'll make of it all. Virtual hugs to everyone who passes here, contact is precious and timeless so that is one good thing that I have learned.
Well said. Time stretches in the “time bog”- some parts fly by and other times (like most evenings) stall out. Hugs to you and yours
The past year appears to me like a series of snapshots with some days standing out clearly but I wonder if they are actually an amalgam of very similar days. But also within such a sad year for so many I felt so much gratitude for my friends and family and the extra time lockdown has given me to connect with them. You are so right, Gwendoline, in saying contact is precious and timeless. I was thinking of you yesterday when I made a chocolate cake to your recipe posted on Freda's blog and thinking it was lovely to have the time to do it. May we all stay safe and enjoy life.
Ooh! How did it turn out? I so hope you enjoyed the eating and the making.
It is delicious and very moist. I was a bit doubtful at one point when the mixture looked very runny but the recipe knew what it was doing. I will make it again and think of you and of Live Simply, all I have learned, all the connections made and how even in dark times there is always some light.
A simple light that signifies a year of world-wide distress. Thinking of all those who lost their lives, their health, their wherewithal, and all those many people who tried to help them, all those who have withstood their own difficulties. Greetings to everyone who follows this blog, and thanks, as ever, to Freda for being our online companion.
I love when you talk to each other here! Thank you so much for your comments.
