This winter I'm embracing the Danish concept of "hygge." Like all good words, this one lacks an easy English translation. Hygge is about coziness and nesting, but also relates to the broader concept of kindness and conviviality, gathering with friends, and slowing down to enjoy simple things. It's become an underpinning of Danish culture, especially during the cold, dark winter months.
For me, hygge means stepping back and taking a thoughtful, compassionate survey of the road we've just traveled. We've covered a lot of ground this year. Let's gather for a look at 2013 in review.
