So we have passed through the days of awe and into the days of a new year.
I wish all my friends of every faith, and my friends who have no faith at all:) a good year, full of joy and possibility, and I thank you all for your friendship and good will.
The last weeks have seen the loss of many people who mattered in many of our collective lives--but memory matters so just keep doing that, remembering. Talking. Sharing. It's by the stories we leave behind that we live beyond the mortal coil.
Let this be a time in which peace becomes a greater possibility, when we can really think of a finer world than the world of the year before.
