It's Tuesday, December 15th. Where has this month (let alone year!) gone??

Right now I'm quietly contemplating what's next, as plans seem to have rearranged themselves...

After checking for mail (thank you, lovelies, for all of the Christmas cards!!) I spent a moment in the sun. With the wind today, it's pretty cold!

I do love the opportunity to feel the sun on my face, though, so I stayed outside until I couldn't feel my fingertips anymore...

Now, I'm contemplating today's Gate 11:

Line 2 - Rigour

"The recognition that without vigilance and risk, peace can lead to stagnation and collapse.

Exaltation: The imagination applied to ensuring the understanding of achieved values. A sense of boredom overcome through the imagination."

Maybe this means I have permission to imagine - rigorously?
