HAPPY NEW YEAR

 Robyn Gordon 2013

"Every man should be born again 
on the first day of January.
Start a fresh page.
Take up one hole more 
in the buckle if necessary,
or let down one,
according to circumstances;
but on the first of January 
let every man
gird himself once more,
with his face to the front,
and take no interest in the things
that were and are past."

-  Henry Ward Beecher

Wishing you all everything of the best for 2014
