“We shall find peace. We shall hear the angels. We shall see the sky sparking with diamonds.” (Anton Chekhov)
Reflecting on the journey of 2016 — literal, of course, as Paul and Marilee travel through Ireland (here, in Dublin) — but also emotional, spiritual, personal, professional. And the transformative experience of one long good-bye, a final farewell to a most precious lady.
Grateful and thankful for: Blessings and bruises. Triumphs and tumults. Hallelujahs and heartache.
May peace, light, and love prevail in 2017 — and joy, too. Happiness can be ephemeral and fleeting, whereas joy is deep and lasting.
Forward, ever forward.
Per aspera ad astra.
