I have been telling friends and co-workers that this is my jubilee year. Most people get the allusion and are happy for me. In Jewish tradition, Jubilee is the celebratory ending of a seven-year cycle of servitude. I use the term to mean a year of freedom from stress after several years of high pressure.
For me, Jubilee has brought with it amazing grounded-ness and lightness. The paradox of balance.
I am a dancer of Argentine tango. Along with my work-place jubilee, I have been blessed with a tango jubilee as well. Months of moving sluggishly and feeling “heavy” have given way to a euphoric lightness of movement, anchored with solidity emanating from my core.
Jubilee means that I am grounded. Jubilee means that I am alight and uncluttered of mind. Clear thinking. Clear moving. Renewed. On my toes. Expectant. Balanced.
