An Eternal State Of Flux

The hardest thing to do is to adapt to the constant changes that occur in the world around us. Just three days ago I was told that an old friend's mother had an aggressive dementia setting in and that soon she would be put into permanent care. It brought back so many memories of gathering around their family dinner table and breaking bread as the noise from conversation escalated. At the same time, news travelled past my ears that a couple I had known for years had decided to split after three decades of marriage. Life is a moving picture that waits for not one member of the audience and it demands us to adapt and change to it's whim, scene by scene; and the end, well, it's always the same ending for each and every one of us. As the year concludes I am now once again with more free time to contemplate the nature of existence and what on earth is my purpose on this tiny little planet somewhere in an absolutely incomprehensibly large universe. I hope to get through these times with good friends and good food. I wish you the most splendid of Christmas' and may you too enjoy every moment together because you never know when you may all be able to gather around the table again, or laugh like hyenas about something completely nonsensical, or eat until you must unfasten a button. Merry Christmas and may you be filled with good Christmas spirit.
