This time of the year is a difficult one for many people as it often becomes a roller coaster ride from one event to another and sometimes you just want to be quiet and reflect in your own personal world with your own thoughts of maybe loved ones who are no longer with you, maybe of lost or thwarted relationships which seem to get highlighted at this time of the year, or maybe you need the time for a moment to think of those who have suffered tragedies throughout the year.

If you would like to relax for a few moments play this video and let your thoughts wander where they may.
