WELCOME 2010


( Twilight Fantasies by Edward Robert Hughes- 1911 )


Ah, another year is on the verge of being born, and so much promise and possibilities lay before each of us to begin again, renew, recreate, or perhaps rediscover our true selves. Though, as many other bloggers have noted, I, too, typically steer clear of your typical resolutions ( dieting, exercising more, etc.) I will, however, challenge myself to welcome this year with nothing but optimism and positive energy, with the knowledge and belief that anything truly is possible.

With all that said, may your New Year be filled with love, laughter, joy, passion, excitement, blessings, courage, tranquility, harmony, bliss, encouragement,wisdom, discernment, forgiveness, positive affirmations, prosperity, and success. May your lives also be filled with beauty, the kind that gives you such pause as to take your breath away and restore your souls.

Wishing each and everyone of you, dear bloggy Tea Society friends, a very Happy New Year!

I must take inspiration from you and go into the new year with all the good things you named. After these many years we just take what comes and thank God we are healthy and able to enjoy. I am impressed with your creative Tuesday submission. Blessings

kind regards,
Patrick

I hope 2010 brings you much joy and laughter. I love the image choice. A good reproduction of Hughes' "Night with her Train of Stars" hangs above the bed in my guest bedroom and it has very much the same feeling as this lovely painting.
