2012 – Th Coss Ov
2012 brings some fundamental changes. Something new is on the horizon.We caught glimpses of what those changes might mean last year, but this yeartakes us right to the heart of the maer. 2012 marks the peak of a transion;a cross over into a new, excing, and at mes challenging era.Many of us have already been directly aected by the global recession, andit impacts on us all in dierent ways. Of course some people are doing well,maybe even beer than before - our own individual cycles play a part in howwe are currently faring. Regardless of our own circumstances, we may know
