I’m getting ready to hunker down for my annual New Year’s Eve reflection activities and thought I’d share my agenda with you — just in case you are looking for something “different” to do this year. It’s an evening I spend with my journal, sketch pads, candles, card decks, music, prayers, intentions, and dreams.
