3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
My first proper day of my fifties was not as productive as I'd intended, although relationship-wise it was a day when my relationships all deepened just by being myself. That of course is more important anyway.
My sleep-pattern, marked by early-waking of late, seemed to settle as I retired at 2200, and apart from a wee at 0215 slept right through with a vivid dream thrown in until woken by the alarm at 0500.
An upsurge in my business in November came at just the right time, with the expenses of a computer monitor, CNHC membership renewal, an electrician, Tadalafil and Christmas to pay for. You could of course interpret this as a handy coincidence, but I prefer to see it as the abundance of the Universe!
