2017 has been a mixed bag. I look forward to 2018 with hope, with optimism because not to would mean amplifying everything that was bad in 2017 and making it worse. I choose to think that we will come out of 2018 knowing that the world tilted a little toward all that is good and human.
On the personal front, I feel blessed enough not to hope or wish for anything new or better. Professionally, as always, I am hoping I will find within myself the strength to push past the malaise to actually do something with my writing.
For you readers, I wish for health, happiness, and peace in 2018.
Happy New Year!
