This year, life did the decluttering for me. Months ago, I had to sort through my things and either toss or pack. On one hand, I was able to get to clothing that I hadn't worn in three years (long story), but, on the other hand, it was not quite the circumstances under which I usually perform my ritual. I also underwent a painful and difficult illness and emergency surgery, all of which forced me into some much needed downtime. So, life cleansed and body cleansed.
It's been difficult, having all this thrust upon me. In some ways, with all I've been through in my life, 2015 was the most difficult year I've ever endured. But, as the last hours of 2015 are ticking away, I'm doing some mental decluttering. Letting go of the hurt and anger. Releasing blues back into the Universe. Sweeping the negativity out the door. Already, 2016 holds promise. Already, events are planned and new books are underway. Already, collaborations are being dreamed up. I don't think for one moment that 2016 holds no challenges, but I know that whatever they are, I've got this. So, here's to 2016... out with the old and in with the new!
