Happy New Year

The days around Christmas were marked around here by an absolutely silly amount of rainfall -- it just kept pounding down, grey and soggy. Then came stormy winds, still accompanied with bursts of rain, but also partnering with the occasional patch of sunshine.
Waves rushed in, scouring the beach, rearranging huge logs, dragging the gravelly sand as they retreated. . .
And the storms ushered in
these glorious postcard days, cold, clear, bright. . .
the perfect beginning for a New Year, the reminder that while there are no guarantees, storms are often followed by serenity, cleansing, hope. . . May that be true for you in 2011!

I still rather like my January 2008 post for a prescription of how to embark on my new year. Check it out, if you'd like . . .
