Endings and Beginnings


New Year's 2013Sitting by the fire gazing out at a snow covered landscape, there’s no looking back for me. 2012 is past leaving behind it’s own special and unique memories. Fortunately, most are good and not tinged with regret or sadness. For that I am very grateful.

Ahead is the promise of a new year meaning that we begin making new memories, experiencing new adventure and friendships, making every day count. For me, T.S. Eliot puts past and future in perspective:

For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.

I am so glad you were a part of last years language and look forward to our new beginnings. Here’s wishing us all a shared and wonderful 2013.

  1. To live wherein making amends is not necessary frees us of regrets in later times. Still there may be regrets for paths not chosen or those chosen in poor judgement. It takes practice and I have learned I had to follow every path destined for me to be the better person I am today. I am the sum of every day of my 63 years.

  2. I tend to carry worries and baggage over from year to year, I love the T.S. Eliot quote, I am going to use it as my mantra for the year and move forward with hope, thank you!

  3. Happy New Year. I love the T.S. Eliot quote. Thank you for sharing that and the beautiful, wintry photo.
