2017: A Year to Organize
by Kim Kanney, Community Bookstore Manager

Happy New Year, friends! Have you noticed 2017 is a “1” year, numerologically speaking? 2+0+1+7=10, or 1. And because 2016 was a 9 year, we have completed a cycle and returned to the beginning. A new chapter. A new opportunity. The start of something new.

Doesn’t it seem pertinent, given our socio-political environment and all the efforts we many of us are striving to achieve for a just, peaceful, and healthy world?

2017 is undoubtedly a year to organize, in more ways than one. How will you organize? What changes are you committed to making? What is your role in this “new beginning?”

FIC Community Bookstore offers you a myriad of ways to start the new year on the right foot and in cooperation. All the best!
