January, I believe, is a 'chill' month after the Christmas season. Looking at my calender, things are picking up again. There's the Chinese New Year, the beginning of the Lenten season which culminates with Easter, and Black History month.
It gives pause as to how diverse a world we are. I've always enjoyed this diversity and derive much pleasure from it. I still have that childlike curiosity about life. I'm open to many things because if one is too rigid in their belief systems, they may miss something that may prove valuable.
