We did it. We made it through a full year, four whole seasons, since Ike. The calendar page will turn in a few hours, and we’ll have survived the first full year after the storm. The island looks good, we mostly look pretty good, and we’ve gotten our emotions and psyches back in relative balance.
So what will 2010 bring? Peace. Prosperity. Or at least the beginnings of economic recovery. Because that didn’t happen in 2009, by the way.
2010 will be quiet. No drama. It will bring focus — to our work and our relationships.
At least that’s my prayer.

Happy New Year to you from Palm Desert. I caught your email before we head out for our NYE party. I do think we had a pretty good year. My family and friends are are reasonably heathy and most are still with us. That’s a good year in my book.
Peace, Love, and Health to you (yes, I know it sounds goofy, but true).
See you soon,
