As 2016, rolled closer to an end, it seemed I heard more and more saying-- this has been a terrible year. Besides the election, which didn't suit everyone for its outcome, we lost many talented artists in music and acting. I wasn't going to put a meme here about grief and then Carrie Fisher died way before her time. :(

There is a time to grieve. And 2016 has given much opportunity to practice that-- unwillingly. Grief can serve a purpose, but it's one we willingly don't seek out. Once it's here though, we might as well make of it what we can. Let's hope 2017 will be better. I always assume the new year will. It's a good way to start out at least-- and why not think positive!
