looking back / facing foward

photo collaboration by Leslye and Taylor

I look back on 2010 and I feel rich in life. It was a year filled with many blessings and new experiences. But there are things in that old year that didn't go exactly as planned or things on the list that weren't quite accomplished . So I look to the New Year - to 2011 - with determination and feel excited for a fresh start and new beginnings.

I hope 2011 brings you many blessings - a year filled with happiness and joy in all that you do.

"For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.”
- T.S.Elliot

I thought of you ... Leslye, on a beach in New Zealand where I picked up stones that looked like jade. There are beaches there where jade is easy to find and also some stones that look pretty, but might not be jade at all. I brought some back thinking that I might talk to you about creating a ring for me in April when I am stateside for a visit. I love what you've been doing with jewelry.

Happy New Year to you and Taylor.
