This time between Christmas and New Year is for me a time of contemplation. My clever husband likes to call it the perineum, a diamond shape in the nether regions of our bodies. A diamond in the rough then, a rare gem of time slowing down, usual routines have vanished and I can spend time recovering, ruminating, reminiscing, revolting, resolving and maybe reattaching.
I’m halfway through and swept away by THE ATTACHMENT by Alisa Piper and Tony Doherty. It’s a pen pal relationship that nurtures my flagging spirit. Filled with thoughts, kindness, consideration, empathy, etymology, and friendship. A treasure, a gem, perhaps a diamond, in all ways perfect for the perineum of 2018.
