Happy New Year

For Auld Lang Syne

I'll take a cup of kindness - hoping that next year is going to be a better year, not only for me, but for everyone!

Time moves on, flowing around me like a stream around a boulder.  I feel anchored to the past more and more.  Growing older, watching the world change, watching it march onward in an ever increasing blur of speed as I look back at what was.  I can see why my mother relates more to events that were thirty years ago that what happened yesterday.

Wishing I had a few fireworks to shoot off tonight as the years turn yet again. Ah well, there's always next year!!!  I'll just pretend my virutal fireworks are real in my picture.

Sharing with you what I feel is one of the best recordings of Auld Lang Syne - EVER!  Matches my mood tonight!  Take care all!


  1. Happy New Year my dear friend. may it be a much better year for you!!

  2. You are the best New Year's gift EVER!!!!! I've missed you and your posts and have been so concerned for you.

    I do hope the coming year holds many many good things for you, including better health.

  3. Debbie, Sue:

    Hoping so much for a better year for all!! Am trying to get back to a more normal life, as once again I redefine what I consider "normal". I have missed you all - you are like family to me. I hope I am like that reaaaally annoying third cousin everyone makes eat at the children's table at family gatherings to you!!! :)

  4. Happy New Year! Hopefully this one will be great.

  5. Thanks Tara - the more I think the world is large, the more it shrinks!!! glad to put a face to name!!!
