So many ideas have taken root, so many seeds planted. It's been a powerful, enlightening 2015 -- trying at times, but those moments make you stronger, and hopefully wiser, better, more patient. Leaves had to be shed, and branches cut off for new ones to sprout. Before we dive into the new year and its possibilities, I'm taking a moment to acknowledge the present. For the present is awesome, and without it I couldn't go daringly into the future.
