Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018

It's time to say goodbye to 2017.
 Bolinas, California

Each year has its unique hills and valleys, but 2017 seemed to be a particularly crazy rollercoaster ride for many. I think a lot of us also looked past personal issues and widened our circle of involvement and concern to include society and the world. That can be a heavy weight to take on. But we did it, and we got through it together.

And now it's time to say hello to 2018.
 Minneapolis, Minnesota

As always, the 1st of the year gives the illusion of a clean slate, a fresh breath, and a renewed purpose. I love being given that chance and I have such grand hopes for 2018. I was talking with a friend on New Year's Eve about how 8 is a version of the infinity sign. This compelling symbol represents so many powerful and healing qualities that I want to tap into as we journey through another year: balance, connection, and the dynamic flow of energy. So that even when we hit lows in 2018, we are able to have the clarity to find highs filled with infinite joy. 

Happy New Year to each and every one of you.
