So long Father Time...

Well, here it is, the day before the last day of the year. Not that anyone has a choice in the matter, but I am ready for this year to move on and let 2006 begin. I have good feelings about what this coming year may have in store and I'm anxious to begin them.

So much has happened during the year that when I stop and process it, it's seems amazing that my partner and I made it through as well as we did. Of course, keeping yourself focused mentally has much to do with it.

In spite of all of the many changes that occurred over the last year, in all honesty, I must say that at this moment, I am much happier than I was a year ago. At this very moment as a matter of fact, I am sitting in the new front porch swing on the porch of our newly purchased home right outside of Philadelphia.

Of course this is a weather rarity, but also at this very moment, the sun is shining brightly on my face and it must be at least 60 degrees.

A year ago, I didn't even know that this wonderful little town where I am now sitting on the swing on my front porch even existed. Amazing what can happen in a year isn't it? A year ago on this day, we were still unpacking in the newly constructed townhouse at the beach - a place that I later learned to dislike tremendously. Of course, without the sale of that place so quickly, I wouldn't be where I am at this very minute. Basking in the sun on my new swing on my front porch listening to Carly Simon's wonderful new CD "Moonlight Serenade"

slinking out of the open window. I do love it here - and am ready to take on the new year bright eyed and determined.
