The move also meant a period of limbo, as we stayed with family until we could find a home that we could call our own. That, in turn, meant that all of my kimono, accessories, and the computer holding all of my photos were all in storage, decidedly inaccessible.
It feels very right that we were able to move into our new home right before the Winter Solstice, settling in as the light returns to the land. Slowly but surely, boxes are getting unpacked, and new routines are being established; new job, new commute, and remembering where we unpacked the silverware.
Along that vein, I wish to make a concerted effort at more posts this coming year. I have so many themes and topics to touch upon, new books to review and new adventures to share. I hope that you will join me as we approach 2018 and the year of the Dog with renewed purpose and energy!
