The holiday season – starting with Thanksgiving and running through New Year’s Day – is challenging for folks that have a hard time being grateful or convivial on cue. It’s a time of long travel hours and cramped personal space as we tiptoe through memory’s minefield to grab another plateful of tryptophan. While there is love and the comforting bosom of kin, there is also contemplation, even in the slivers of solitude we snag between clinking glasses and stacks of dishes. It’s a season where we gauge what mile marker we’ve reached in the race in our heads. May we find ourselves further along than the last time we checked.
This is the final Poundings mix of 2011. Next week we begin Deathcember, DI’s annual rumination on mortality and the end of things.
