Ringing in the New Year

Posted in Family by Pam Keesey on January 2, 2008

My long, dark tea-time of the soul. That’s how I have been thinking of 2007. I have never wanted a year to be over so badly.

2007 has been, without question, the most difficult year of my life so far. In fact, the last five years have been challenging. As I was telling a friend, my life since moving to Seattle has been largely defined by the themes of death and dying. But to lose my dear sister not just my sister, but my baby girl, one of my closest and dearest friends, and my most fierce and loyal supporter was more than I was prepared to deal with.

As I move into 2008, it is with a heavy heart and an eye toward introspection, reflection, transformation, and healing. So perhaps that long, dark tea-time of the soul isnt quite over. But I have a dream of coming through this with greater self awareness, deeper connections, and a new vision of my life moving forward. That is my wish and my hope as I start this new year.
