2015 burned bright for me. It burned away old patterns and beliefs, biases, and illusions of separation. It burned away guilt and shame and fortified self love and generosity above all. All of this, the stuff of transformation, came from relationships with some of the most amazing people I have ever met. So thank you Mike Shine, Rossi Lamont Walter, Shyrine Ziadeh, Jonathan Konsh, Mate Moray, Eric Shuman, Liliana Carrizo, Marina Hotchkiss, Bob Feder, David Feder, Cindy Feder, Mark Janes, The Fulbright Program, Gay Lynch, Deborah Friedes Galili, and everyone I danced with this year, for helping me to become more of who I am.
My hope for 2016 is that we can all give ourselves a pat on the back more often and thank ourselves for everything it takes to be an imperfect human on this planet. I hope we can all learn from our mistakes and keep on creating a world we love that loves us back. Cheers to a new year of self assurance and shameless creativity! Whoop!
