For many of us, 2016 was a tough year. I know it was for me.
It started well. The highlight was Lisa and I and our three adult children meeting up in Costa Rica for two weeks. Unforgettable and lovely!
Then early in the spring my brother Mark took¬†his own life. You can read about it here
While I was in Ontario attending to all that, I started watching CNN. Fascinated by Trump's rise to popularity, I was hooked. I became addicted to main stream media. My disbelief and alarm escalated over the ensuing months until in November I pretty much crashed as a result of the election. And I'm Canadian!
On the one hand, I couldn't believe such a careless and dangerous man should or could win. On the other hand, I'm not na√Øve about humanity and already knew we can individually and collectively reach any depth of evil. We don't learn from history, except maybe how to achieve our ambitions¬†by more stealth.
So, 2016 was a huge lesson for me. I go into 2017 as if shot from a cannon. By force of will! But hopefully also gracefully.
Much love to you all.
