And here we are, easing, or rather racing at warp speed like the Millennium Falcon escaping the Death Star before it explodes, out of what many people consider to be a real fart-in-a-diver’s-helmet of a year. Though, yes, this has been a memorably, EXCEPTIONALLY, fraught year - this is globally, I might add - I cannot blame 2016 on 2016. I’m pretty sure “2016” was not the cause of death on any of the countless death certificates issued this year. When I look back at My Year, there is me, myself and I always and only me, myself and I to blame, applaud, what have you. And while I undoubtedly have some big things I blame myself for in 2016, I have to add that I also have myself to thank. The past six months have been the most revelatory, most reflective, most reflexive, most eye opening of my adult life. My one precious life. I have never felt closer in the journey to my Truth. So, I guess on a personal level, though I’m pleased to see you go, I thank you, 2016. But also, when that ball drops like a lead balloon at midnight (though I’m like 99% certain I’ll be sound asleep), I usher in the new year with my own internal ticker tape parade. Onward and upward and happy New Year, beautiful people.
