2007 is passing away. I don't know about you, but as far as I'm concerned, that's a good thing. It was a very challenging year for me and in spite of all the wonderful things that came to pass, like getting my Reiki Master degree, finding the Sufi acupuncturist and showing (and selling) my photos, I can't dredge up a single drop of sadness at its passing.
When things get old, it's time for them to move on. Even time itself, measured in secular years, gets stale by the end of the solar month we call December. Some people write lists of the best and worst of the year passing away. I could. I could rant and rave especially about the seventh month of the seventh year of the new millenium, a month that sucked from beginning to end. Or I could wax rhapsodic about all the wonderful things that happened in the past cycle.
I prefer, however, to look forward to 2008. I'll complete my training in Jin Shin this coming year, take a class in memoir writing - sounds fun, eh? I've got two café shows for my photographs lined up for January and February, too. And I have an invitation to spend Thanksgiving in Wales this coming year, something I'm determined to do. Sounds like a great year ahead, yes? Yes.
As for 2007, may you pass away quickly and painlessly and rest in peace. What a year. All the good things, and all the sad things that made up the year are all finished now ... it's almost over. Onwards & upwards!
