A New Year

A New Year sorta feels like fresh start. In the midst of a global pandemic, we certainly could use one. Possibly you have a list that will commence on New Year’s Day of things to do more and less of.  Good idea. It’s an orderly start so precisely on day 1 and well we’re almost there... so go for it.  However, know that you don’t need a particular day to change wishes to plans. I’m cheering you on and won’t judge you if take a re-start later in the year.  On January 1, we will open the new book. Its pages are blank. You are the author.

My favorite quote about snowfall. “The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?” J. B.
