What happened? It was just Christmas, and now it’s New Year’s Eve! I am really looking forward to the fresh potential of a group of 12 months and 365 days under the umbrella of New Year number 2017. Before the new year begins, I want first, to thank every one of you for your loyal following, especially when I returned from an unexpected hiatus to blog again. Your support means the world to me, especially the emails and comments. I have a lot of exciting plans for the coming year and look forward to sharing them with you.
So much about this year seems to have shaken our sense of stability. At least it has mine. The list of notable people that have passed from the American scene seemed too numerous and constant. Personal losses. Politics. Every year my wish for the world is the same, and that wish seems more remote and less possible than ever . Yet I crazily hold onto hope. So again, my wish for all of humanity and creatures alike in this chaotic and unstable world, is that rationality, reason and PEACE descends in a heavy blanket across this blue planet,the third rock from the sun, this teeny, tiny, dot in the universe.
And suddenly you know…..it’s a new year and a time to try something novel or brand new or unfamiliar, and trust in the magic of beginnings. Blessings to you all. laters, charisse
