After all the hoopla, to wake up this morning and simply find it a Sunday; that number change stripped of all its ceremony and my little head a little sore from the ringing in of it.
Still, enough of the magic still remains that I'll feel different today. Once I shower and go get a new 2012 Metropass, I'll ride downtown and get a coffee. I'll savour that coffee a little more and let my hands run over books in shops.
All the ceremony boils down to these small first gestures and that's just grand... Quiet tokens, dusted with hope, a slight change in attention, to mark a hopeful start. A gentle determination, an extra inch stretched in yoga. And a sweet moment in my inbox to make me smile.
