I am not crazy about new year's celebrations but do like the idea of a fresh start and evaluation of what direction to choose for the coming year. Retro/intro/inspection leads me to focus on my family first and secondly continue my work with Alchemy Initiative, Teaching and Making. The fact that my dad is very sick helped me clarify my focus and see this as the beginning of a journey into successful handling of inevitable changes. May I see the inevitable changes with a clear focus and positive acceptance that flows over to the changes I choose, and guide me to choose well. So far I like the sweatshirts.
