Tick Tock! The clock is winding down for us in the Rocky Mountains, USA, bringing 2013 to a close. The New Year is almost here with new hopes and fresh promises. 

Many of you around the world have already ushered out the old, as I have yet to welcome 2014. I send you love, near and far, with the hope for peace and joy ― happiness and prosperity ― health and well-being, as we observe this passage from the old to the new.

For me, there were many blessings, as I look over the past year and recall what transpired and what I’ve learned. It’s been a rewarding journey.

I’ve gotten closer to my followers and relationships have flourished. I’ve met beautiful people and made wonderful new friends this year. I’ve learned about other countries and their cultures. I’ve grown as a human and looked deeper within.

I thank you for your visits to my site and look for you to come back and share more with me on what’s happening in your corner of the world. I love the exchange of stories and appreciate you listening to my banter, wild imaginings and the reading of my stories. It means a lot for me to connect with you and be a part of your life.

As I wipe my slate clean to refresh and begin a new year, I’m inspired with new hopes, ideas and dreams. I’m excited for what lies ahead. I want to take chances, try new things and learn more. I’m eager and open to exploring new adventures.

So, as we add another year to this young century, from my kitchen table I will leave you with this video on the last millennium with Kenny G’s “Auld Lang Syne” and extend a heartfelt wish to you and your families that many blessings will come your way in 2014.

Happy New Year ― Namaste!
