2016 Month by Month

 

Perhaps more than any other year 2016 was all about who I am becoming. Tears of grief watered the soil to produce new life. My identity as a husband no longer fit. My circle of friends was almost entirely re-written. I learned new things, explored foreign countries, and flirted with the frailty of life. Toward the end I finally started making films and doing things I had previously only dreamt about.
