How To Start A Joyous New Year

First we gave thanks
for friends and family, near and far–people like you

Then we gave thanks for each other;
for love and friendship, inspiration, laughter.

We gave thanks for our home and our food.

New Year’s Day Dinner:
Lemon Thyme Roast Chicken, Roasted Broccoli, Quinoa Apple Currant Stuffing, Cranberry Sauce, Cranberry Walnut Bread.

And later I gave thanks
for a message I received from a friend like you:

“Happy New Year, Bruce!
Now more than ever the world needs you to continue creating beauty..and celebrate Life!”
For him and for you,
here is a favorite landscape from this past year:

How do you celebrate life? Give thanks?
I would love to hear from you!
