This time of year is always a hive of activity, with presents being purchased, Christmas lists getting checked off, and the calendar days being counted down...
And yet, although there is still a need for organisation and preparations, this year the devotion of energy seems a lot more subdued than usual.
Everything feels a little more tempered, a little more mellow, a little more spacious. And this pace in fact feels perfect.
In this relative slowness and sensibility there is more opportunity to remain present and to make more considerate choices about how to spend time and exchange value; with togetherness perhaps taking precedent over indulgences, quality taking precedent over quantity.
