On the cusp of 2010, let me just say


Live each season as it passes;

breathe the air,

drink the drink,

taste the fruit,


and resign yourself to the influences of each.
Henry David Thoreau



Live daringly, boldly, fearlessly.
Taste the relish to be found in competition -
in having put forth the best within you.
Henry J. Kaiser



Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the wise.
Seek what they sought.
Matsuo Basho

May your year be filled with happiness and good health.

And may all your wishes and dreams come true.

Happy New Year Everyone!

Oh that WAS lovely... Happy New Year to the Patchett Household too. We have tried out 2010 for almost 16 hours now. Fits OK so far.

I have an Aussie quote to round things off for you:

"Don't wait for a light to appear at the end of the tunnel, stride down there and light the bloody thing yourself." (Sara Henderson)

Love that!

All the best to you and yours for 2010, which is starting off this morning with a gentle snowfall.

(And it's Patchet with one t, although there are members of my family who spell it with two. Pretty much sums up my family, I'd say.)

Happy New Year, Pam, to you and yours. May you have only good things and blessings this year.

(I was gonna send you a New Year card, but the squirrel wasn't cooperating :-P )
