It is the middle of the night and sitting under the Christmas tree in a room of my own design; I look outside my window and see other trees full of lights, blowing in the wind and the rain. All the neighbors have gone to sleep. Except for the sounds of beating rain and whispering wind all is silent. Yesterday still clings to me in these early morning hours and I find myself not wanting to let go. Time is bringing us closer to a new day and a new year, yet with all the dreams of the future, I know that I will still go to bed in the arms of yesterday.

Let us welcome the New Year hoping for a better future by learning from our mistakes in the past and applying these lessons into the year 2012. Hold on as well to past triumph and love for they also will shape the year to come.
Happy New Year everyone! Take yesterday to bed with you but wake up with tomorrow. I hope you also get the chance to develop as many "negatives" as you can into beautiful pictures that you can put in your album of life.
