Happy New Year to one and all. I think I am ready to begin a new year and a new decade.
These seeds, which some would take to be ugly and of no interest, remind me of a promise made in "the bleak midwinter". In spring their magic will give us pause. My toast to the new year is that it be positive, productive, prosperous, and peaceful for one and all. I hope the pieces of cloth, thread, paper, wood, stone, metal and all the bits of life we choose work together harmoniously and with wonderful creative energy. I hope everyone is ready to meet the challenges ahead.
