This month is loaded with activity and obligations between Hanukkah, Christmas, New Year's Eve and my personal favorite, year end. December takes on an urgency to tackle all the unfinished projects, complete tasks and chores overlooked. I feel an increased pressure that induces a kind of frenzy. Between all the mental machinations, holiday preparations and wrapping up the year it's hard to imagine relaxation. Stressed, overwhelmed and frustrated, yes. Exhilaration occurs, unlike the skier above, only in my dreams.
(the skier was placed strategically in a snow drift by my driveway and not in Gstaad)
