Well the year is nearly past and so much has happened. So much has changed and yet again not changed…or so it would seem. Today feels like yesterday, and it seems surreal when I think about what has been created this year with me moving to Europe, The Alchemy of the Body classes being created and developed, as well as other interest classes under the Alchemy banner. I feel the same person and yet I know that I am not, and that old me can no longer exist as I really don’t remember who he is, so it will be of interest to catch up with some (including my children and grand children) who knew me and can spot the changes etc.
I have been sitting here today with Lara (my youngest daughter) and she has been showing me much of the Genealogy that has been completed on some of my family lines. This has really been and interesting event as it has really shown me how much I am tied to the lands here, in France, Denmark, Germany, Norway, and even Russia. No wonder it feels like home here. I’m now sitting watching a airliner streaking across the sky with a vapour trail behind like a tiny comet and I wonder what the New Year will Bring…what new things I will Create, what new friends I will meet, and who I will be by the time I sit again and contemplate the world and the sky next winter.
Happy winter Solstice to all my northern hemisphere friends, and happy summer solstice to all my family and friends in the Southern hemisphere. The photos above are just a small portion of the people I have met this year and who have helped me be the change that I am... most of the photos are also the result of Valerie Sherin who kindly came to the classes and created an amazing pictogram on the history of this year....for me. xx
