Emptying to Refill for the New Year

With just two days left in 2010, I am suddenly filled with an extreme sense of awe about the past year. It's been a dense, wonderful, and challenging series of events!

Not that I need to catalog my happenings for the past twelve months (which did include touring on four continents, getting pregnant/having a child, getting used to an expanded family, and taking a break from and then going back to performing... whew).

No, it's more about acknowledging waves of gratitude and relief, and just a little bit of shock. This all just went down! And it has all been pretty good--tough at times, but good.

With an enormous exhale I feel I can let some of the details of the year obscure a bit into a wash of color. And I feel strong and clear again to breathe in the new year...

(...and with Baby N's help, to catch up on correspondence that has slipped a bit for the last couple of months!)
