Another year is closing. I can hardly comprehend that it was two years ago that I wrote a post about New Year’s Resolutions. Rereading it today, I realize that while I’ve taken my own advice, I’m still working on it. As I always will be.

Thank you to those that have taken parts of this year’s journey with me. Thank you for letting me take part in yours.

Daylight Savings Time, Body Confidence, Stupidity in Politics, Worth Dying For, and Death. I’ve been preaching weariness more than wonderlust. (Here’s where I mentally resolve to balance that scale a bit.) A few of those posts aren’t from this year, so after a quick scroll I chose one of my favorite posts of 2015: Why? (x4).
I don’t know what sorrows 2016 will bring, but I am finding it easier to live in joy. I know that my blogging family deserves some thanks for that.
New year, new look. Like it?
I don’t know who Rubio hoped to score points with this morning. I’m hoping he lost some.
