A New Year Begun

Image from the internet — 2019 spelled backwards indicates a year ahead of Romance, Passion, and Love

What a Beautiful Simple and Delight-FULL New Year,
Brimming Over with Promise!
And Just Begun!

This New Year’s Eve, I found myself with a Spectacular Office overlooking Times Square, with a terrace outside the window, providing a direct view of the Ball Drop a hundred yards away!
Friends told me that I would be the New Year’s Eve Date to Get this year! (more…)

There is a kind of subtle dread that begins to creep in at this point in the process.
It’s New Year’s Day, and something tells me that by this weekend,

and then we cannot begin the UnDecorating until Tuesday —
meaning it will likely not happen until the following Weekend.

It is a Frame of Mind
Like the Non-Judgemental Beginner’s Mindset.

It is a Willingness to Bless our Past
And Let it Go
And to Embrace Fully that which lies ahead;
To take Life’s Face in our Hands and say, “I Will Love You Again!” (more…)
