So here I am with you in 2004. We took the same path--one day at a time from January 1, 2003 to this moment.
What did we do with the year? What do we have to show for our time invested? What's been learned so clearly that it will never be forgotten. How have we changed? Learned? Aged? Renewed?
What has stretched, strengthened and supported us? What's enlarged our capacity? What has constrainted, weakened and isolated us? What's diminshed our reserves?
And what do we seek in these early January days? And in the weeks and months ahead?
"A deadline is a negative inspiration. Still, it's better than no inspiration at all."
--Rita Mae Brown
