Rememberings of this year past carry some weight and make it difficult to leap into the new year Does it help that we assign these demarcations dividing our lives into segments? Does it ease our path going forward or is it simply about giving ourselves another chance to make things right? Do we get to wipe the slate clean and write a new story Or are there other ways to bring the Past into the Present? I’d like to think the Past provides some ground work - In an almost literal way Living necessitates that we process what’s past so that it becomes fertile soil for regeneration Life isn’t the linear path we expected It does, thankfully, offer us a richness of opportunities to work the soil while we play in the dirt.
