2015 Begins

A page turned and completed another chapter in the book of the years last night when 2014 became 2015.

The final period on the year occurred as we shouted 3..2..1 just before we said
First Dawn of 2015

Happy New Year!

I find it interesting that the years arrive and depart under the cover of darkness. In some places, the darkness is short as opposed to the Northern Hemisphere where the hours of light seem brief. For instance, Sydney, Australia had about 14 hours and 22 minutes of daylight to celebrate the first day of the new year. Here in Elkridge, we are expecting a mere 9 hours and 28 minutes of sunlight.

The new year dawned clear and cold in Elkridge. I awoke to 17 degrees, a clear sky, and a subdued sunrise due to the lack of moisture in the air.

But, it is the new year and it is full of hope and promise.

Happy New Year to all! May the blessings and happiness of the new year not be overlooked amidst the dirt and disappointment of life. Let's plan to meet back here in 365 days to celebrate again the changing of the year and the promise of the new one.
