Dear readers & fellow bloggers,
We're obliged for your kind attention this year.
2011 was a difficult year for many of us.
As it comes to a close, perhaps I can pose some questions for each of us to reflect on:
What happened in 2011? What worked?
What didn't work? What have we learned?
Learning is hard; dogma is easy. (I speak from experience...)
It's helpful to remember & honour our core values:
- Family, team, community,
- The Cardinal Virtues: Temperance, Prudence, Justice & Courage,
- Simple decency,
It's also important to remember that the future is bright.
In spite of everything, people around the world have more sustenance, time, energy, and freedom of thought & movement, than ever before.
In spite of everything...
Happy New Year and a safe and prosperous 2012 to you & yours.
