Sankalpa Finale

I'm moving forward into 2016 as a creative risk-taker.  At some points during the sankalpa, I felt disappointed that I wasn't taking creative risks in January. But now that I'm reflecting on the experience, I think I was missing the larger point of the exercise. The point is not to be a creative risk-taker from January 1st to 31st - it's to wash your consciousness in the identity, so that it'll stay with you all year and beyond.

Tangential but essential to creative risks, it's my sister Rachel's birthday today.  She's thirty.  I can't even believe this, but she wants to celebrate thirty with me. She's flying in later this week, and we're going to Duluth to do a sister thing for the weekend.  Sometimes what happens is you don't have a certain sister in your life for many years, and then you do.  It's risky, but it's wonderful and so worth it.

We did well with our sankalpas.
I liked starting the year this way.
