I have no plans for tonight. At first, I thought I might go over to American Sushi House, about two miles away, for dinner. The family that owns it, from Korea, have become friends, but I don't much feel like going alone - and I have a couple of Netflix movies - so I think I'll just stay put. I've enjoyed just reading blogs today, with all their wonderful New Year's messages of hope and renewal. I've only heard from a couple of family members and friends so it is really nice to feel the warmth from my blogging world. I just visited the blog of Karen at Keeping Secrets
( http://keepingsecrets-karen.blogspot.com/2009/12/new-year-blossoms.html ) and thought her post was so visually beautifully and uplifting. You might want to check it out.
It's already dark here and, in parts of the world, the New Year has already debuted. I just pray that everyone celebrates safely and sanely. We don't need any tragedies to mar the beginning of a new decade.
Blessings to our world. If we all join forces, we may manage to embrace each other in peace and understanding.
