The beginning of the calendar year also marks the end of the entire previous year’s worth of experiences. We naturally encourage ourselves to take stock of where we have landed on the timeline of our lives—how have we grown? What could we have done differently? How have we made a difference in our families (the ones we were born with and also the ones we have lovingly crafted for ourselves)? In lieu of a typical New Year’s Resolutions list, we like the idea of aiming for a broader view of doing good. To simply think about how our actions affect those around us is a great start. With a strong foundation, we can work outwards in order to accomplish the sort of change that leaves the world a better place than it was when we entered it. Hardly anyone exemplifies this philosophy of living better than the beloved and recently departed Nelson Mandela. We are each a star in the sky above- like a small stone suspended in the web of an elaborate Native American dreamcatcher. There is a place for all of us, and we each have a purpose to fulfill- in our homes, our communities and in the world at large. When we feel good, we do good… so as we greet the New Year, remember to laugh, cultivate and radiate love and positivity, try to look at the world each day with fresh eyes and treat ourselves and each other well.

We wish you a very Happy New Year, and we thank you so much for helping to make 2013 a wonderful year for Jiva-Apoha. Your kindness as friends and supporters is our biggest reason to celebrate!

David Bowie's birthday is on January 8th. He has been a major figure in the world of popular music for over four decades, an innovator, and known for his distinctive voice. We appreciate a good classic tune! STARMAN is just one of many favs. Thank you Mr. David Bowie for sharing your eclecticism of exciting work.
