As 2016 draws to a close, I sit here in a proverbial pillar of salt. While it was an interesting and reasonably good year on a personal level, I am sad and despondent over the state of our nation. As much as I would like to be positive and say that 2017 is going to be a banner year, it is far more likely to become a shit-storm.
That me for me it is a time for introversion and building.
My book will be finished.
I will be working more with homeschoolers and maybe less in the arts... unless those two things combine.
I will make a decision about my Masters degree.. will I get one or not?
I hope I can find some joy this year.. as I have a wonderful family and am well cared for, but what good is my comfort if others are being persecuted?
Goodbye 2016. I will spend the next few days putting on my armor for the coming years.
