Ad Infinitum...



"For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning."
~ T.S. Eliot - "Little Gidding"


Here’s to new vices (oops, I mean voices) and new beginnings – unless, of course you’re quite content with the language and voice you currently possess and then there’s always the possibility that all this talk of endings & new beginnings has your mind running in circles…which have no beginning and no end…which brings to mind the fact that, “…every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end.” (Closing Time – Semisonic).

Somewhat convoluted? Yes. Have I gone off on a tangent? Yes, again.

I shall close with a simple and heartfelt -

Happy New Year to You All!

Happy New Year, Beth. I hope this year lets you leave behind the woes of last. I believe a fresh start is possible at any time during the year and that there is often too much pressure put on these next 48 hours for change. I hope you got all that Christmas stuff put away, that the toilet is fixed and no more mice are stirring.

I believe that only good things can be coming your way in the new year. Heaven knows you've had more than a "load" to carry in this one. And yet, should you need to carry that load into the new year you will do it with the grace and the spirit you always have.

Leave it to you to find a perfect Eliot quote!!! :)

Wishing you love and happiness and wonderful possibilities for the coming year!! xo
