Last night as I awaited the arrival of the new year, a dear friend sent this to me and several of our friends. I think it was the perfect way to end a tumultuous year, and prepare to embrace the new year ahead. Such an incredible reminder that we can approach life with a kinder, gentler perspective, and that often times, we are the very person in our life most in need of our own grace.

I have lots I’d like to accomplish this year, returning to this space regularly being chief among them, but instead of setting a lot of lofty goals, I’m going to start with these right here. Although, if I’m honest, there is one I will not commit to – if I drink anymore water I really will float away. But the rest, I will do my best to keep, or at least valiantly attempt. I hope you’ll join me.

Happy New Year my friends! May 2022 be a balm for all our souls.
