2018 is nearly over, 2019 about to start. There is a brief moment in between the two, an instant that is a blank slate free and clear. Then it passes and we are thrown headlong into another year of work, triumphs, losses, and new experiences of all sorts. But for that moment there is a pause where all things are possible, and none are at the same time. A hiatus we can breathe into before dipping our toe or plunging in. This will be the weekend I take stock of the old year and try to lay plans for the new. To see what worked and what didn’t, it is all part of how I lay the year to rest.
