And in November

November November, just after October not quite December…

The longest time one ever contemplates the value of a year is in November …when by default or choice, the decisions that you have made will seep through into what your 2 /3 week sojourn into the wilderness that is December will turn out to be.

The growing trepidation of a holiday season… Wrapping up a work year  an academic year, a relationship year…

2018 has been about friendships for me and a lot of my peers. Losing friendships, gaining new friends.. And crossing bridges…. Transition… Change. And choosing your counsel. Nothing is as important as the voices you want echoing, not echoing… Validating . Calling bs and every other little bit in between.

Its been about insulating,not isolating… There’s a difference you see… Because insulation feeds you from the inside… Isolation keeps you from the outside.. And in the spaces that you find rest in between.. You are clear..

Clarity beloved, is grace… And in November.. You are as clear as day of how the year has panned out… What you intend to do with your next year while you have brief respite…

November is to see where you’ve planted your seeds, to check on your soil… To add fertilizer if need be… To water… To tend your garden…

The harvest season awaits.
