An old year's dissolution

 

The lights of a new day flicker on, 
like the hope offered by a small candle in a winter storm.

Too small to do much more than cast a shadow on a wall and provide fleeting warmth; but, wise enough to know hope grows bigger with nothing but faith! 

New dreams wash the insides of our eyelids like picture shows of old. childlike awe fills voids at the prospects of old tides turning with nothing but a marker. 

A new day, a day in which the first seven, so much was accomplished and therefore possible. Even a silly little thing like the end of an old and beginning of a new year!

Off we go, in search of better -very often leaving it behind for the promise of adventure. Never did a new approach ever run smooth thus we are absorbed in the squabble of life's new experiences searching for peace and often ignoring it when we find it. 

Happy adventures! 
may you enjoy the life out of your challenges, both those that rise to meet you, and those you choose to engage in. May you find the fire that lightens and fills the heart with joy and inspires.
