In general, I think I’m organized for the most part, and in the challenging busy times throughout the year I’m able to stay level and get things done. December, however, feels like a different story. Around the holidays I can feel my body tensing a little with every addition to my to-do list. This photo, taken at a pier in Skagway, Alaska, reminds me of that feeling – of holding things together and at the same time being pulled taught. I’m almost done with my December to-do list, and then I can picture that rope becoming more slack. It’s a nice visual to imagine!
