Happy New Year!


Check out this quote:

And now let us welcome the New Year
Full of things that have never been.

–Rainer Marie Rilke

Isn’t that just beautiful? That’s exactly how I feel about 2006…it’s full of possibilities. Yesterday morning, I opened the kitchen window and was amazed at how full and happy the air was. It felt heavy with possibility.

I don’t know what’s more fun…setting goals for the coming year or dreaming of what life may bring. I’d like to be healthier. I’d like to ride my bike more. I’d like to continue being crafty. I’d like to eat really good food. I’d like to meditate.

But how much of my life can I control? What about what life will bring to me? I could meet someone inspiring this year. I could lose someone I love. I could win a prize. I could suddenly like olives. I could grow a wart.

How exciting! I’m not sure I’ve ever felt this much anticipation about the New Year. I feel happy to be alive, and ready for whatever lies ahead. Happy New Year, everybody!

  2. Happy New Year. Here’s to hoping for a wart-free year! It’s nice to take a look at your life as a whole and realize how you fit into the world. It seems to make things fall into perspective. You have inspired me. Thank you.
