Happy New Year

Happy New Year

September is my New Year.

Forget the fireworks and hoopla of January 1—all new things begin in September for me. New school years, new projects, new group activities—September is kick-off time for all that. After allowing myself to go fallow in the hot, humidity of an Ottawa summer, I surge with new energy in the cooler autumn Canadian temperatures.

If you surrender to the wind, you can ride it.  ~Toni Morrison

As I start my new year and you start yours, lets surrender to the wind and ride it. I can’t wait to see where it takes us.

  1. Yesterday I had such a feeling of anticipation. I just knew that something exciting was coming my way but not sure what it could be. I woke up this morning with a new resolve to go to the gym, finish a couple of projects, make soup. I can hear kids outside excitedly chattering as they await the school bus- they feel it too. Happy New Year, Arlene.

  2. Right! Me too. Full of energy, even in this muggy weather. Have a great day, and year.
