In about half an hour, many around the world will watch the ball drop in Times Square. I’m not sure whether I’ll watch that ball drop, but here are a few balls that I’ve watched in the last couple of weeks. (“Watched” in the sense of “looked at while I took a photo.”)
A shiny glass ball on my Christmas tree.
A soccer ball, and the bowl shaped depression it left when it was frozen in a puddle.
A new ball for the puppy, out on the frozen slush on the back patio.
A glittery decorative ball on the sparkling aftermath of a craft project.
While it had some good times, 2016 was a tough year in many ways. I feel like a dropped a lot of balls. Here’s hoping the new year has me successfully juggling my various projects.
Happy New Year, in any case!
