"And now let us welcome the New Year, full of things that have never been." --Rilke
I just love that quote. It exactly matches the way I feel about 2010. It makes me think of the wonders that are to come. The contentment that I will feel when I spend time with my husband and kids, the people I love the most in the whole world; the special spark I will feel on 2010's holidays (often so full of magic for me); the beauty of the seasons as they burst upon us; and the certain happiness I will feel knowing that ALL of my children finally share the same continent with me.
I wish that I could be like Janus, the Roman god...not having two faces, but his mythical ability to see both into the past and into the future. Though I like surprises, I would also like to have a glimpse into what is yet to be. Would I like what I see? That is the danger, isn't it?
Here's to a Happy, Happy New Year and a wonderful decade!
