Ring out the old, ring in the new,

Ring, happy bells, across the snow:

The year is going, let him go;

Ring out the false, ring in the true.

~Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Happy New Year to you!  I hope 2009 is a spectacular year for you, full of joy, adventure, love, creativity, good challenges, and many rewards.  May you enjoy excellent health and well-being, and please do come visit me again.  I’ll keep the virtual fire going, ready to welcome you back.
