A New Year

A new year is a simple unit of time

a short fragment of eternity

a precious gift from the universe.

A new year is a repeat offering

to try new things, to make mistakes

to learn from them and to grow.

A new year is a renewed invitation

to live each minute of it mindfully

harboring love and hope but no fear.

A new year is a thousand opportunities

to bring a smile on a stranger’s face

a sparkle of joy on an angel’s wing.

    1. Thanks Laurie. I have hundreds of bad and so-so photos of fireworks from previous years. This time at least little of the practice paid off. I took 146 shots and about 15-20 are fairly good 🙂 so I hope 2014 I will be able to take more quality photos. At least I will work on it!

  2. Oh, my!! What amazing pictures, they are wonderful. Happy New Year sweet friend, wishing for you a very prosperous 2014 filled with all good things. Very nice post. Hugs
