I love this quote by Leonard Cohen...
there are cracks in everything. that's how the light gets in.
As i get older I become better acquainted with my own cracks, and I agree with Leo.
2015 was pretty dark. The world was dark...and so was my own personal experience. Not always, of course, but I let the darkness in in a way that I haven't in a long while. I succumbed to it and allowed it to spread and stretch into and over everything. If you know me, you know that's not my way.
My one little word for 2016 is light. Not original or terribly impressive, but perfect as one evening a few days ago it chose me and in return I chose it. This word has many layers and many meanings for me. I associate it with kindness, humor, generosity and spirit. All the things I hope to practice in the coming year. I want to indulge in the things that bring light into my life...my home, my family, my hobbies and avoid the things that don't.
I find myself making no effort to engage in the things I find unworthy. The truth is...we all have stuff but if you bring light to my life and I bring a little to yours...well, what more is there?
