2014 MY YEAR

Glancing back, Letting go and Going on

January
Beginning
*
From Wendy for the two of us
A Blizzard!
"Get me out of here" I thought, and 'Poof'
I was on a train to Florida to visit Dearest

February
The Loving Month
*
Many kinds of love
 Broome Street Temple
Heartfelt chanting with friends

March
Wind and Change
*
A new old-stove that works!
Unusual conflagration of gulls inland

April
The Tuning Month
*
Teddy got a resonance tune up
Friend Lorelei had a piece in the annual
National Arts Club show
 a good time was shared

May
Spring Springs
*
An avian couple appears again
Lens replacement was a success

June
Bursting Time
*
Fell down the escalator at Penn Station
 Boarded for Massachusetts anyway to swing and heal
Foxglove
Digitalis of the soil

July
Storms
*
Lightning
Museum of Natural History
Star clusters above us
 Jewels under our feet
And we amount to no more than a hair in time

August
Heat Rises
*
Songs in the dark
Blooming
Bouncing
at the Museum of New York City
Life and Death
A feather for Judith

September
Turning
*
Harvest Moon
Zen Circle
"On this night our days are shortened by one."
 9/11

A Winters Tale at The Delacorte

October
Shedding Skins
*
Amaranth is dying
Tibet House
Veridian Gallery Show
.
"August" in October

November
Giving Thanks

Paper Whites Popping
Deserts
Sated

December
The Finale
*
It snowed all night
Deck the Halls
Last look
THE YEAR
by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

 
What can be said in New Year rhymes,
That’s not been said a thousand times?

The new years come, the old years go,
We know we dream, we dream we know.

We rise up laughing with the light,
We lie down weeping with the night.

We hug the world until it stings,
We curse it then and sigh for wings.

We live, we love, we woo, we wed,
We wreathe our brides, we sheet our dead.

We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear,
And that’s the burden of the year.

2015
Onward
Into the mystery

Happy New Year "Ms." Michelle.
I do hope that what we've witnessed thus
far, is not just a taste of things to come.
Here's wishing - Peace, Joy & Solitude to you - in 2015.
