Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Merry Christmas!


I’d like to thank all of you who spend time reading my blog, looking at the photos and so often commenting. 2022 has been a challenging year for some of us, and it’s nice to put thoughts out into the blogosphere, as a way of therapy or just to record events.

Thank you for understanding that sometimes I write for all of us, and sometimes I write for me alone. Either way I feel your support and I appreciate it so much.

Have a peaceful or chaotic holiday, whichever you prefer and then let’s all work on making the new year extra special. I’ll be around soon, you can count on more birds, more snow, more parks, more night skies, more walks, more musings, and more adventures. I can hardly wait.

Hugs to everyone.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. Merry Christmas Dawn! I hope you have a good day today.

    Your posts make me smile, laugh, gasp (those night sky photos!) and the occasional tear rolls down my face. Thank you for sharing and for you being you.

    • Merry Christmas, Sara! Thank you for coming along on the ride. I miss the old days when there were so many blogs written by dogs, or their people, but I appreciate that so many of us are still around. I hope you and your family have a good day too. I think of your sister and her children and hope they are growing up happy and healthy. I think of your dogs and wonder how they are…and of course I hope your career is going well. I know you make a huge difference in your students’ lives. Merry Christmas to you and your husband.
