Happy Hopeful New Year

DECEMBER 24, 2012
My annual Christmas card never happened.  First time since I can remember.  These past few months have seen much transition, improvisation, adaption, and hopefully the beginnings of overcoming. Christmas was also feeling very off kilter, what with mid autumn weather here in New York, both upstate and down, and the news of the previous weeks.  However, a moment's inspiration yesterday resolved my dilemma about a solution for a rebound New Year's card. 
Wishing you all an outstanding 2013.  Let's hope that human nature is trumped more by, to quote from Lincoln, "the better angels of our nature".
