Happy New Year!
We are about 40 minutes into the year 2010, and I just got inside from standing out in the shovelled walkway to the house looking up at a cold but incredibly bright full moon. You know how often a blue moon appears on New Year's Eve? About once every 19 years. So tonight is a special night, one to pay special attention and reflect on all that has happened in the last 12 months, and then close that chapter and begin a new one. Here's to all the hopes and dreams for the coming year, perhaps this rare moon in the skies will be a sign of wonderful things to come. As I sit here warming up from being outside enjoying the cold and quiet, I have a lot of thoughts running through my head about the year ahead. Some small idle wishes, some grand dreams for what life might bring this way next.
Here's to hoping that life will go on in all its beauty and bits of new knowledge and pleasure for everyone to enjoy to the absolute fullest!
