Alas a new year begins, the dawning of a new era, time to begin anew, setting your sights on a new chapter in your life, new hopes and dreams. What might be beyond the horizon, what possibilties await your next step? I put out to the universe the welcoming of meeting friends not yet known, the safe keeping of family, and times of laughter and of joy. i participate in life with anticipation of what might be. I am here. I am ready.
