HAPPY NEW YEAR!


With the last of the season holiday's upon us until yet another year passes...hope always abounds with the prospects of a new beginning. For each of us, the past year surely has moments that will linger as fond memories along with times of trial that we need to move off from. That is just the way life plays out.

Looking forward for a chance to correct the failed attempts at reconciliation, the loss of loved ones or the loss of a job...we can begin anew and chart a path celebrating those who may no longer be with us, begin with a renewal of efforts to change that which didn't work and savor the special moments that will play out this coming year.

In these often strained times of economic downturn, threats to our safety and way of life, life choices that we must make...for better or worse...I wish you the wisdom and strength to navigate the obstacle course and make this coming year the best year of your life.

I hope the warmth of the sunshine will follow you wherever your path leads you and this time next year finds you healthy and secure in the path taken .

Enjoy the journey and here is hoping you have a Happy New Year.

Dan

What a lovely bright beginning to a new year and a new road to travel, I wonder what waits around the corner.
Enjoy your day.

The word verification is color, quite appropriate for your post, don't you think? :)

This is an HDR photo...three negatives merged together. It brings out the sky without blowing out the rest of the picture.
