On New Year and what it means…

Humans are weird. The earth has taken yet another turn around our local star. Fanfare abounded, we celebrated with alcohol, loud music, big bangs and pretty lights. 

Why? What is the meaning of this? 

I can’t speak for anyone else but I approach New Years Eve with such bittersweet emotions. New Years Eve takes me back to a time when I was young and everything was so much simpler, a time before my dad died when we had incredible New Years parties when he played the bagpipes up and down the road and a tall dark stranger with a lump of coal was the first to enter the house. 

In 2016 we went to Nan Hua (the Buddhist temple in Bronkhorstspruit) it took me away from all those thoughts and allowed me to spend some time with the Goddesses and Gods. For this I am so thankful.
