Last night @ Lunessence we did a great art project to begin to complete our year. It was AWESOME. I realized how intense / full this year has been, so much newness and such a electrical charge to my life... so much activity, so many new friends. I got a little overwhelmed by everything earlier this week, I think due to the abrupt reality of Suzi's pending death. I feel more constricted and quiet, like "make it all go away!". I'm tucking into winter, preparing to shrink and withdraw.
