Toasting with a wine glass I caught after accidently breaking it's stem.
It's part of 'Great Turning'
where people stop and reconsider
what's priority in life now,
not just presently this day
but in year, or decade
because importance shifts with age,
often hard for youthful understanding
when looking at elder's choices,
less gregarious perhaps, more focused
toward a few life dreams
instead of many imagined before,
as thoughts around dying legacy
surface to influence energy output,
helping decide worthiness of efforts,
aliveness, any pursuit brings individual
and how community is effected,
remembering there's balance to maintain,
all work and no play
doesn't support one's changing values.
