I was watching a family of ducks swimming this weekend. There was a small breakaway of ducklings but their mother soon rallied them around and led them downstream, down a small rapid and around the corner to quieter water. It was a bit hair-raising for the little ones but they were content to go with the flow. With the Christmas holidays looming I feel a little like one of these ducks, bobbing along with the current of work and preparations for the big holidays to come. No sense in trying to do the impossible. Best to go with the flow. And dare I say it enjoy the ride!
