Live, Love, Laugh...

No one does it better than Nancy, my niece--as well as the little sister & daughter
I never had-- and dear friend!
Here she is in Asheville, NC on Christmas Day!
May your New Year be filled with health, happiness,
wisdom, and wonder!

Warm and woolly wishes for a wonderful 2011 to you and yours, dear FireLight! xx

Betsy said...

Health and happiness to all of you for 2011, FireLight! Love the hints of blue/green in your header pic and the January plaque!

FireLight said...

Tom, thank you! And all the best to you in 2011.

~T~, yes Asheville is a lovely mountain town. We love going to the Grove Park Inn and the Arts & Crafts Designs show held there in February.

Tess my Willow, I think this is going to be a really big year for you. (And I don't mean my finally sending the dog guard for the Rover, LOL!)

Dear Betsy, as we grow older, it helps to explore our younger selves...like visiting a long absent friend. God bless you and those Fine Five Men! What an inspirartion you are to so many!

Lady Cat, Nancy is full of hope and optimism all through the year, and it does rub off! Thank you for stopping by.

Derrick, I want a signed book! Congratulations on a fabulous yesr for you and your poetry! Believe it or not, the only touch up on that photo is the "vingette" feature. It is a color photo I made in Janurary of 2009 while visiting on a friend'd farm in south Georgia. The creek on the property had overflowed its banks creating a swamp filled with hardwoods. The morning light reached in and illuminated each clinging trace of color in the winter gray.
