    2. I think that you have had a lot of stuff going on this year, not the least of which is your job change and breaking a bone.

I still do occasionally (see above re: Japanese stationery), but I am learning to be more mindful. It is a process. I have found that it isn't instantaneous. Change is hard. I think changing ourselves is even harder.
      More later!
