I do not always end the year with a life-changing event. Nor do I often share my personal life, other than cheering for my three phenomenal children & the girls at Daraja Academy in Kenya, which I do unabashedly.
I usually write about the inspirations & insights I receive in nature, my morning meditations, works of art, & the books I read –right now Isabel Allende’s The Japanese Lover is enchanting me. The previous book I read was Find A Way by Diana Nyad – you will be moved beyond measure & on the edge of your seat with her story & physical triumph.
The end of 2015 is gracing me with marrying a man who gives me love, joy, laughter & brilliance everyday – Carl Lumbly. When he proposed in August, we knew that committing our lives to each other was not only “right,” but a miracle of sorts. The stunning surprise of discovering our similar characters, our love for writing & reading, hiking & exercise, & the completeness of being present each moment in this imperfect world expands our hearts.
As 2015 comes to a close, I wish everyone a most spectacular 2016 heaped high with the fulfillment of dreams, the realization of passions, & hearts filled with kindness, & love.
Happy New Year!
