That said, this year has also held some wonderful things—especially the week of the Kaleidoscope Gathering, which I hope I'll get to attend again in the coming year. As upset and frustrated and low as I've been feeling, there have been moments of hope and joy. I certainly hope that I can find a few more of those in 2015.
As has been my tradition when celebrating the new year alone, I'll be starting a kettle for tea soon. Earl Grey—that old favourite. And even if I'm not actually listening to it when midnight strikes, I know that the following song will be on my mind:
Have a great 2015, everyone. May we all be blessed with love, wisdom, and the will to act with both.
