The End of This YearPosted: December 31, 2014 Filed under: Kindness, Meditation, Yoga | Tags: Belize, gratitude, Jack Ridl, kindness, life, New Year's, passion, Poetry, Prose, The End of This Year 13 Comments
The best place to be is here,
at home, the two of us, while
others ski or eat out. It will be
quiet. We won’t watch the ball
fall, the crowd in Times Square.
They will celebrate while here
there is this night. Tomorrow
some will start over, or vow
to stop something; maybe try
again. Here the snow will
fall through the light over
the back door and gather
on the steps. We will hope
our daughter will be safe.
She will wonder what
the year will bring. Maybe
we will say a prayer.
powerful words married with a stunning image. Thanks for sharing this. My best to you in 2015… May the words flow freely…
Your thoughts and kindness are truly inspiring – Thank you!
Blessings and Safety to you and yours! I would rather do what you are doing, and other than a visiting a friend’s home tonight early for her birthday, we will be home – enjoying the solitude of the present moment. I think of my 3 boys, one who is planning on putting himself in danger tonight and my stomach does not feel good about it. He is 20, and I have little to control other than to say that it is his life. It’s hard to allow life to happen on life’s terms. I pray that everyone remains safe.
Peace, Joy, Abundance, and Blessings to All.
Sending thoughts of compassion and kindness to you and your family this New Year 🙂
We will be enjoying the holiday very simply also. All the best to you in 2015. Thank you for sharing!
… And thank you for your continued support and guidance!
Sending on love and blessings for a beautiful New Year. I believe it will be a New Year to remember forever more as the time the light finally won, Love won, and we will be dazzled by the new opportunities and magic all around.
Beautifully stated my friend!
Beautiful words and a happy new year to you =D
Happy belated New Year to you as well! May your heart be filled with kindness as we gently start the year – Take care!

… And the very same to you my friend 🙂
