A New Year's Wish

I wish you a New Year like a new day, full of promise and unlimited possibility . . .

I wish you Spring, the sweet freshness of daffodils and the birds, singing for joy . . .

I wish you Summer and the smell of cut grass and wind-dried sheets. . .



I wish you Autumn, with blazing trees and crisp nights and the whiff of woodsmoke in the air . . .















I wish you Winter and its glowing nights and magic dawns . . .

And with each season and on every path you walk, I wish you Beauty and Happiness.

Once again my New Years resolutions will include writing more. One short story in "Clothes Lines" was total output. Looking forward to your new book. Joan C.

A beautiful wish and gorgeous photos. May it all be reflected back upon you and yours.

Thank you for these imaginative collection of wonderful New Year wishes! May they all come true for you too!

Our Christmas tree is still standing, I put it up only days before Christmas Eve. Tradition here dictates that trees be only sold close to the first day of Christmas, but the decorated trees will remain up until at least until Twelfth Night (in the countryside, farmers may leave it until Candlemas, the 2nd of February - often their trees are small fir trees, standing in the entry hall, which at least in the good old time used to be not heated).

Ah, good wishes for the new year to you, too!

I'm going to pass on the wind-dried sheets. Too many trees in my yard for that!

Thanks !
I love all your photos taken in different seasons, but of I prefer that one with the open door, wide open on the new world : it's full of new promises !

Beautiful pictures, beautiful words. Hope that you have a blessed New Year.

Write more, Joan, write more!

Thank you, DL -- I'm counting on it.

The Twelfth Night tradition is strong over here, Merisi -- I don't know where my Alabama grandmother came up with her dictum.

You have a point there, Molly. Maybe there's a dryer sheet that mimics that good smell.

I adore pictures of open doors or gates, Miss Yves -- (like your new header!)

And the best to you and all the Fairlight Farm critters, Tammy!

Tipper said...

Thank you-and Happy New Year to you too : ) Love the photos.

Pretty pictures and poetic words (or should I say poetical thoughts?) or may be that the words combined with the pictures created a visual poem? That does not sound good either – well I am not a writer but I do mean you are, and a good one. It will be a year full of promise for us, but I hope we shall start taking care of our planet, in earnest.

Vicki Lane said...

Amen, Vagabonde, to taking care of the planet!
