And so one loop around the sun ends, and another begins.
Don’t worry. We’ve done this before – a few billion times. Rarely do we veer off course, crash into things, or run out of gas. This trip’s pretty predictable, actually.
Our personal journeys…not so much.
May you and your loved ones have a smooth ride this time around. A safe one, a courageous one, a joyful one. One of gratitude, and patience, and wisdom.
I wish you a comfortable bed, cold water to drink and hot water to shower, a room of your own, a circle of your favourite people, the warmth of the sun on your face, and every opportunity you deserve.
And chocolate. (Unless you don’t like chocolate. Then I wish you whatever you do like.)
Happy New Year, everyone!
