Halfway through my commute to school this morning, when I realized that my trip would take twice as long as it normally does (due to the holiday transit schedule), and I was already late, I decided to skip my transfer and continue on the train to my favorite coffee shop in my favorite neighborhood. On exiting the station, I was struck (once again) by how beautiful the light was at 9:15 on a December morning. Even as we are journeying between the more “beautiful” seasons of fall and spring, there is still so much beauty to behold. Similarly, 2016 has been a really trying year for me, but I have still been able to enjoy some really wonderful moments along the way. Along with the rest of you, I’m looking forward to new opportunities and changes in 2017, but also trying to appreciate my journey along the way. Happy New Year to all!
