"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.

~T.S. Eliot, "Little Gidding"

Seasons change, time presses forward, we spiral into the future, sometimes aware of the past as we let go and breathe in the fresh air full of hope and transformation. Other times simply falling asleep before the clock strikes 12 to awaken in a new age full of swirling opportunities and possibilities we did not dream of before midnight. Each thought requires another voice, each end becomes the new beginning to which we all aspire.

I am thankful for my soul, Norma, and the richness of relationships, friends, music and song, and my children, and of course, the gift of selling fresh fish -- in the Mountains of all places! More than fish, though, all the new people we are privileged to get to know and become friends with, exchange ideas, encourage, and listen to, and still: make music with, play guitar and sing, and learn new songs, trade songs, even write songs.

I guess this is what we call, Community. And for that, am thankful to reap the best from our communities linked by these mountain roads we travel every day going where we go, doing what we do.

 As last year's words belong to the past, 2012 seeks a new tongue to express itself, unanticipated blessings and changes and prospects patiently waiting to become reality. May each end you make be the richest of beginnings. ~Peace...
