The old year has passed, and 2011 has come at last, opening the possibilities for change and new beginnings.

May you be graced with blessings, joy and insights.
As a result of this blog’s success, we have joined WordPress’ new weekly post challenge, committing ourselves to posting at least twice a week, every week throughout this year. Not an easy task, but we are up for the challenge. Hopefully….!?!
We exceeded our initial goal for 2010 for this blog and reached a viewership of over 10,000. As you can imagine we are thrilled
Check out our previous post for the details and a list of our most viewed posts.
Moving on, we wanted to share some thoughts to inspire you. During the last few days of December, 2010, we took the opportunity to visit Albuquerque’s River of Lights, a magnificent display of lights, presented every year by the local zoo and botanical gardens. It was bitter cold, our frozen fingers could barely hold on to the camera, but on the upside, we managed to get some great pictures. Thought you might enjoy a few examples of the Southwest during the holiday season. We also uploaded additional pictures to Flickr.
You know that you are in the Southwest, when you come across cacti decorated with lights. Ah, the magic of lights!
Of course, the inevitable question you are presented with in most restaurants is: Would you like red or green? Chili, that is!
Nature is full of genius, full of divinity; so that not a snowflake escapes its fashioning hand.
Henry David Thoreau
Who looks in the sun will see no light else; but also he will see no shadow. Our life revolves unceasingly, but the center is ever the same, and the wise will regard only the seasons of the soul.
Henry David Thoreau
The important thing is not to stop questioning; curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when contemplating the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of the mystery every day. The important thing is to never stop questioning; never lose a holy curiosity.
Love is the song of the soul, singing to God.
…..You may say I’m a dreamer,
but I’m not the only one.
I hope some day you’ll join us,
And the world will be as one.
Dream big, see the possibilities, allow yourself to fail. Just pick yourself up and start again. See yourself anew!
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
