Happy New Year!

It is dusk on New Year's Day and the snow is falling gently.  It's been a  peaceful, art-filled day in my part of the world.    I have always liked the idea of coming up with a word for a new year but find it difficult with all of the choices available.  I stopped short of digging out the dictionary though....thankfully!   I just seemed to come back to something that Fred Eaglesmith had said at a concert.   He talked about "Enough"....about deciding that you are enough and that you have enough.    To me that's powerful and challenging at the same time.   It's so easy to compare ourselves to others, to feel that we fall short in some way, to stress over not being a good enough daughter, friend etc. but what if we were just "enough".
