Fact No. 6 – Ritual Celebration

One year and one day ago, I was celebrating Mardi Gras in Williamsburg, chez Ian and George.  A memorably wonderful party: Guitars, piano, trombone.  A lot of laughter and singing.  Gumbo and King cake.  I was barely two hours off a plane home from Hawai’i, surrounded by friends, rocking a tan, a Negra Modelo and a whole lot of beads.

Many intervening ups and downs since then, but today I am thankful to find life no less beautiful.  And I would say I’m even more aware of the importance of celebration.  Note to self: February is a good month to step up efforts to dance, kiss and sing.  Who’s with me?
