From last week when we had the frozen fog.
After 2 weeks in bed with some illness or other I
am finally back at my computer.
I found this posted by that great author: Anonymous
I am the new year.
I am an unspoiled page in your book of time.
I am your next chance at the art of living.
I am your opportunity to practice what you have learned during the last twelve months of your life.
All that you sought the past year and failed to find is hidden in me;
I am waiting for you to search it out again and, this time, with more determination.
All the good that you tried to do and didn’t achieve last year is mine to grant --
providing you have clearer intention and fewer conflicting beliefs.
In me lies the potential of all that you dreamed but didn’t dare to do,
all that you hoped but did not perform, all that you prayed for and did not yet experience.
These dreams slumber lightly, waiting to be awakened by the touch of an enduring purpose.
Yes, I am the new year.
