    Heather, I am so glad you send that email!

    That was my favourite New Year’s Eve ever. I left feeling so happy and sure and sparkly and ready.

    I hope this becomes a tradition!

    Thanks for describing this, Heather, and letting me participate in this way. I would so much have loved to be there, but maybe next year! I felt that it worked out (for me) the way it was supposed to. Earlier in the evening, H. and I went to Birds Hills and made a fire and roasted smokies. Something especially meaningful about that (which I’m going to do a post about yet) was that although we felt completely alone in the park and drove a long time looking for a firepit (they’re easier to spot in the daylight) we suddenly came upon one that still had glowing embers, though we saw no one. So, we built our fire from that.

    Big love,
    Cath

    […] It’s no secret that I like labyrinths. I visit them often and am very happy that the beautiful Carol Shields labyrinth (in the photo above) is just across the river from where I live. It was at the centre of that labyrinth that I stood with my candle in a small circle of women, welcoming 2012. […]
