Happy New Year!

Happy New Year
We just feel like dancing!

The old year has passed, and 2011 has come at last, opening the possibilities for change and new beginnings. Before delving into this new year, we wanted to thank all of our subscribers and faithful readers for your loyalty, commentary and support throughout this past year. We hope to continue to inspire you throughout this year with  creativity, humor,  tales of our travels and new ideas involving the gluten free lifestyle. You, our readers, motivate us and continue to make blogging a joy that we treasure. We celebrate you  and wish you and your loved ones the very best for this new year. May you be graced with blessings,  joy and insights.

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.

Of course, the inevitable question you are presented with in most restaurants is: Would you like red or green? Chili, that is!

Happy New Year - The door to the Inner Self. Only the brave may enter.

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

Happy New Year

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.

Albert Einstein

Happy New Year - Stars

Love is the song of the soul, singing to God.

Paramahansa Yogananda

Happy New Year - Simba and Valentine: Love is all around.

…..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.

John Lennon

Happy New Year - Strawberry Fields

Dream big, see the possibilities, allow yourself to fail. Just pick yourself up and start again. See yourself anew!



We love hearing from you
