2017, you mercurial beast! Life is not a straight path. This year brought that one home real hard. The highs were high and the lows were loooow.  But what a good teacher struggle is! And when we flew, we soared. Meghan married Alec. Leeann married Adam. Thamalee married Yahren. Marilou married Barry. Sarah and Matt had Quinn. Lauren started a business. Bethan was brave. I was trusted to tell their stories. Does it get better than that? If so, I haven't found it. 

Trust the process, savour the view, amble. Zigzag is the new forward. So ring out wild bells; let the old year die.  Here's seventeen for the road.
