A friend emails that her word for this new year is receptivity.

I sit with those five syllables, entranced, waiting for light, even as I savor the dark.

My father died 46 years ago today.  I was 19.  He was 47.  He was riding a motorcycle on a beautiful day.  I was in Mexico City.  The wound of his passing took years to heal, and really didn't close until my mother passed ten years ago this February.  I felt them joined again.

This is always a quiet day for me, one of receptivity, as I honor with gratitude all my gifts, and the coming together of so much I don't need to understand.
