I’d like to wish a Happy and Successful New Year to all readers, whether you be regular, occasional or first time visitors! In a very short time, you’ve all helped make this blog into a pleasant, informative, and fun place to visit (certainly for me).
I’d hoped that this could be -and it has indeed become, with your help- a place that you can come into, kick off your shoes, and settle down for a while in a comfy chair in the company of others, sometimes take part in (or just listen to) a bit of conversation, or just browse the reading and viewing materials at your leisure.
I hope we’ll continue our community in 2007.
Thanks to all of you.
(The image -captured in the garden just now- is a kind of botanical version of the sort of starbursts that you might see in fireworks quite a bit in the next several hours. I also rather like the idea of pockets of pleasant green bursting forth, here, there, and everywhere.)
