Happy New Year! The first week of 2019 is in the books and I hope yours was a great one, and the rest of 2019 is filled with what makes you happy. Fun, family, friends, adventures, creative pursuits, hikes in the Irish hills…I’m in!
Right now I’m in “monk mode,” as Greg McKeown puts it in his brilliant book Essentialism. This means I’m on a tight deadline. I’m running a bit behind given our multi-day power outage and then a nasty post-Christmas stomach virus, but all is well on our hilltop in Vermont.
This photo’s a favorite from 2018, from a trip to the south Irish coast. It’s how I want to think of the year ahead. A beautiful sky, a quiet sea and a rainbow on the horizon. A balcony from which to enjoy them doesn’t hurt, either!
My best to you this new year, wherever you find yourself.
