a new year

Sometimes I wonder what became of the kings, or wise men, or magi after they arrived at the stable. After following the star for how long? was it an ending or the beginning?

Despite the countdown to midnight and the changing of the calendars, for me, the real new year begins after the lights are packed away, the ornaments safely tucked into storage, and the last pine needle has been swept. Not until after Epiphany.

I have delighted in following so many lovely blogs this year and from what you've been writing about 2014, I can't wait to see what each of you is up to. I thank each of you, deeply.
And wish each of you an amazing new year.


  1. Look at those amaryllis!
    Happiest of New Years to you, dear friend.

  2. Happy New Year Sharon. I hope it is not too cold where you are. The flowers are stunning.

  3. Dear Sharon,

    I wish you a peaceful, joyful New Year filled with moments of wonder and love.

    Warmest wishes,
