Getting Started in the New Year

I'm going to start writing something in this as a kind of resolution for the new year, either that or just take it down; but I'm willing to try one more time before fully committing to its destruction.  Probably the most pressing issue facing us right now is the change of leadership that's about to take place in our country's capital.  For some of us, its a terrifying realization of what happens when ill-informed people are fed a stead diet of fictitious narratives, while others of us are seeing it as a chance for the nation to go through a period of rebirth in which the swamp is drained and refilled with cleaner, less salty water.  Regardless of where you fall on that spectrum it seems that tons of people are feeling pretty bummed about the state of things and looking for something to help them get by.  Personally, the thing that's making it easier for me to get through is the realization that universe is in balance, and seeks to return to that state when it gets out of whack.
