I just wanted to take this opportunity to reflect on what an amazing year 2012 has been! As with every year, there is a lot to be thankful for; many lessons learned and prospects for the future.
I know I have said it many times before, but I continually feel privileged to be able to work in the natural products industry; thanks to all of you for putting up with me! On that same note, I’m equally thankful for good friends and family and for the continued ability to occupy some small space on the exciting party that is Spaceship Earth.
This year has been an exciting one full of exciting projects – and next year promises to just get more exciting!
Chris Kilham, the famed Medicine Hunter, posted the following on his Facebook page today and I thought I’d share it here, as it is as well written as any paraphrased version I could construct. It also sums up the way I feel about many of you.
“As this calendar year comes to a close and another readies to open, I’d like to thank all the people who care about the world and about humanity, life on our fragile planet, and the well-being of all. Despite overwhelming odds, indifference, war, greed, hatred, stupidity and venal pursuits, lots of people get up every single day caring about life. To all of you, I salute you and am deeply grateful for your presence and companionship on this small orb. Peace to all.”
Happy New Year’s y’all – see you in 2013. Thanks for continuing to care about life! May God bless you all.
