#WeekendCoffeeShare No Regrets

Welcome to my home this 31 December, 2016. May I offer you some coffee, tea, or a cocktail? We have a lavish buffet of fruits and nuts to tickle your taste buds while you tickle my imagination. Do tell what your Christmas, or last week, was like for you. If you are visiting Tucson from a cold climate you will enjoy seeing all the flowers still blooming in my yard, and the grapefruit tree loaded with fruit. We had a good rain storm last night so the air is clear and fresh. Stay for a while before you have to go back to winter.

Our holiday decorations have been taken down and stored in the barn. I keep it simple, so striking the set takes little effort and time. The days are quickly lengthening again, and the narcissus is blooming in my garden. In a way we have a two-phase spring, and not much of a winter here. It is almost always sunny, a blessing and a curse. I went to my dermatologist for a light treatment for all my sun damage. This painless procedure requires 3 days in darkness to recover. I fully indulged in my 3 dark days, which fell between 18 and 21 Dec, the darkest days of the year. I hibernated, emerged for a party weekend, then went back in my hobbit hole at home this week. I have been at the gym or at home all week, and it has been divine. I have been reading a lot of new books and generally soaking in the season.  I may have also watched a little too much TV, since we have a few free trial channels going now.

For 2017 I look forward to by every day life, which I find to be very pleasurable.  I make no resolutions, and so far have not chosen three words for next year, as I have done for a while.  I may choose three before the end of the day, but my basic philosophy is to be as helpful to others as I can with the talents I have.  In order to be of service I need to accurately assess by own self efficacy, then improve on it.  I am going to try writing fiction in 2017.  I see a lot of flash fiction that fascinates me, and I have not given fiction much focus.  I think if I use a journal to stimulate fictional stories I can get that engine started.  I will do NaPoWriMo in April, writing a poem a day for 30 days.  This gets easier each year, but I wonder when I will turn into a poet.

I appreciate the coffee sharing community and the diverse cultures and views we represent.  May we all party on in good health in 2017 and release all our petty regrets from the past.  To join this weekly party check in with Diana.  Comment, read, or add your own two cents.  Thanks for being such good company, my coffee sharing friends.  May the force be with us.  I wish you all health and happiness.
