It's a New Year and the winds of change are sweeping the slate and making it cleaner and cleaner. The tabula is being rasa. Dead branches are falling. Hats are changing, as Nick and I prepare to drive across the US and back to Massachusetts again. The Venice projects are being wrapped up as the new Santa Fe projects are marching in. Un altro giro di giostra.
I have had a few weeks of winter sports in Santa Fe, which helped rejuvenate the body and the mind. I saw the luminaria and the farolitos at Christmas, and ate healthy organic food with Nick and Simon every night.
Most importantly, I have thinned down the numerous initiatives on my plate to just the 10 most meaningful projects that I really want to pursue from here on down. With this simplified life plan, I have gained a clarity of purpose that will make everything else easier. I just hope Nick says good bye to his ennui and finds his purposeful life path as he turns 21 in a couple of weeks.
Now it's time to travel back to the East coast once more.
This promises to be a defining year.
