New Year Revelling

first of all I had to put my New Years eve slippers on to go out and celebrate the coming of this New Year.. something dutch husband & I have done for nearly 20 years, with the same friends.. some may come and go, but there is always the same core of faces each New Years eve

my friend Peter, n Me...he is the head chef & the best friend anyone could wish for... each year with him is a bonus as he is now nearly 77..

a favourite sparkling Australian wine..

which flowed freely..

a sense of fun is always important

and one must always finish the night of with something sweet..

and even amidst the celebrations.. I found time to find the Sacred in MY Ordinary.... Happy 2010 !

And Such a Happy new year to you my dear Robyn.
Lets hope it is the start of a different sort of year not just the start of a year.
I will drink a toast to you later, as I didn't celebrate last night I wanted to wait till the year really began. And it certainly has now as my house is filled with winter sunshine and there is sparkling frost on the ground.

Dear R:

Happy New Year to you and I absolutely look forward to your journeys of finding the sacred in your ordinary. Last year was hard for many, but along with the hard has been the divine, like getting to know you and travel the road with you.

Bright Blessings in the New Year!
