Step One

The mythology of the phoenix varies by culture, but I choose to see it as a symbol of the rebirth of hope arising from the ashes of despair. That having been said, it seems to me 2017 was a year of despair. May that despair spontaneously combust at the stroke of midnight as the new year is ushered in to every part of the world, hope rising from the ashes of a year gone horribly wrong. The year 2018 can become—if we try hard enough—a year of repair and rebirth. Happy New Year. Welcome to your new job: rebuilding hope.
