I mean how often have you said, “________ (insert irritant here) is a real pain in the neck, and then the next day you wake up with a pain in your neck?” Usually we tell ourselves that we must have slept on it wrong, or we need a new pillow.

During the last week of every year I take time to sit alone with a pen and pad and I write. I write about the outgoing year. I acknowledge all things that have held some space in my mind and heart.
