it's the time of year when the world starts anew.... and many of us look back at what we've done. new year - it either gives a sense of "better things to come" or "oh, no, not more of the same." me, i tend to be melancholy. introspective. each year its different for me. this year i worry. what usually worries me is the sense of dread over things i can't control.... like the economy, war, is God really listening to me? i do realize that worrying about stuff i can't really control is probably not the best way to spend my time... but i guess that's what makes me who i am... human a small business owner. Don't get me wrong i do feel blessed... by my relationships (yes, honey, i mean you), my fantastic job and the many gifts in my life. life IS good. i stumbled across this website last year... it's like heaven for old discarded photos from a million years ago. when i get mucked in my melancholy madness i like to go look at these oldies but goodies. i like to look into the eyes of the proud parents with a newly hatched baby or the fancy ladies with fashionable hats or the fresh faced lovers on a date. they make me smile. they make my heart swell with hope. they make me look forward to better things coming in the new year... knowing that whenever i need to i can look back at this website, when something old is new again.
happy new year.
