taking the time to reflect on the last year and recenter for the one approaching. i love the promise that new beginnings hold.
without a recent photograph to accompany this new year’s eve-themed post, i looked back through my library for an old one that might hint at the prospect of journeys, past, present, and future. the photograph above was taken three years ago, when i hiked mt. olympus in greece. to me, it signifies both beginnings and endings–stepping forward, towards the unknown, with the past trailing close behind. it is important to choose wisely what we wish to hold onto, to bring forth with us, and what is better left in the far-off past.
here’s to positive starts. wishing you happiness, safety and peace tonight, and into 2014.
