Year’s end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.
~ Hal Borland

2010 is nearly over… and, well, to be honest, I am too tired to care :-) I am relieved and glad and happy.

My New Year’s Eve has been simple and nice so far –

a walk with Lams and minty gelato;

a day at the beach with Lams, Roman and Philip;

a long walk through the supermarket;

an evening cooking my lunch/dinner: prawns and mussels atop spaghetti (with garlic, onion, sauvignon blanc, saffron, canned tomatoes, salt, pepper, paprika, sugar, chilli, herbs).

Tonight, we’ll have drinks, maybe some dancing… tonight will not be an end, and tomorrow will not be a beginning – but midnight will be a landmark of sorts, an entertaining intermission, a beautiful footprint in the journey that is life.

2011, I look forward to meeting you.

Happy new year, everyone!
