Nice one. I don’t imagine it’s easy to write something on a common theme without being cliché, but here I think you have. Sober. Inward. Moderation. Realistic expectation. These are the words that come to my mind as I listen.

I’m glad, that you are OK already. I understand your feeling, because i’m also at the end of a long, hard period. Take care of yourself, because we need you!

You made me cry. Thanks so much for listening, and I’m very happy to see you’re back! I’ve missed you around here. I’m glad to hear that your long hard period is ending.

your voice takes the inner world on a journey - as if we’re experiencing your story right with you.

Thanks Em. I tried to maximize the content and minimize the stuffiness… I’m sure you know what I mean. ;-)

we have a consistent theme with this project, in addition to the obvious one — stuffiness! a style all our own :)

This is beautifully written, SJ, expressing sentiments we can all relate to but can’t always translate into such skilfully chosen words. A lovely piece for the end of the year and the beginning of the next. xxxx

Even your spoken word pieces are very musical, with rhythm and melody.

Just a part of this vignette that moves me is your reference to the satellite, which reminds me of so many nights falling asleep under the Canadian shield sky. There’s something about things that fly by so high that makes me, like you, “hope for the best.”

Lovely SackJo! I really like:

“I cherish my loves, and their lovliness.”

and the satellite / star reference

as well as the words “in the brief visible patch of sky between the window and the window pane”

Great reflection of how the ending of the year is the beginning of another. We give it great meaning, it is also just another day. Hoping for the best is a good approach in every now moment!
