2015: ch- ch- ch- changes!

It’s Christmas Day, an incredibly beautiful day here in Santa Cruz after the wind and rain of the last few days. As we drove home, the air was clearer and brighter than the movie screen that we’d been glued to. “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is a swashbuckling movie about a new beginning, and I’m thinking about new beginnings and the cycles they mark.

Charlie, Alex and I visited with Antony and Courtney and their little ones at an AirBnB in Lompoc during the summer. The little ones duly spent much of their time beating up on Charlie and Alex. Here it's Charlie's turn.

I’ve had a few perceivable cycles, not as many or as dramatic as Princess Leia or Han Solo, but a few. There was the Cath, Jim and Sue cycle in Birmingham and Marlow, the Sunshine, Nick and Tom cycle in New York and Paris, and the Marie-Helene, Daphne, Alban, Nick, Tom, Charlie and Alex cycle in Paris and Santa Cruz, to name but three.

I think that another one is coming. No more children, but something new, a rebirth, a different view of what matters. It’s early days yet, but something is indeed happening here, Mr. Jones, and can be glimpsed in the transitions that have populated this year. . . . .
