Happy New Year !

I wish you all a very Happy New Year 2008 !

As Morwyn puts it, may all your wishes be fulfilled in every way that is good for you !

As Florence Grimm puts it, may this New Year allow us to take time ; time to appreciate each minute, a sun ray, a water drop, a smile, a nice walk in the countryside, a sunrise on a winter scene or a delicious tea near the chimney... Let's realize that as consumers we can change the course of things one step at a time... We always have the choice. Let's share.

As poet Rosemonde Gérard puts it (which I discovered through lovely Givernews blog)

Bonne année à toutes les choses,
Au monde ! A la mer ! Aux forêts !
Bonne année à toutes les roses
Que l'hiver prépare en secret.
Bonne année à tous ceux qui m'aiment,
Et qui m'entendent ici bas,
Et bonne année aussi, quand même,
A tous ceux qui ne m'aiment pas.

(Happy New Year to everything, to the World, to the Sea, to Forests ! Happy New Year to all the roses that Winter is secretly preparing. Happy New Year to all who love me and hear me in this World, and Happy New Year anyways, to those who don't like me)

Above all may this New Year see you reconnecting to your true feelings and needs, to your inner tenderness, may it see you grounding yourself for tomorrow's challenges !

With love,

Hélène

How beautiful. I love that sentiment. As we learn to care more for our world we do need to remember we are part of it and care for ourselves too. Happy Creative New Year.
