Happy new year to you, Shamash. It sounds like you're fully engaged in the flow of life -- enjoy!


I'm watching the snow pile high in our Angel Fire front yard as I sit in my loft. Thinking of you, sending love, and hoping you have a wonderful 2008.

Happy New Year Shamash!
May happiness and health be with you in 2008!

Looking back to an extremely busy 2007 too, I remembered

Where to go…
Be it to her best friend’s kitchen table..
Or a charming inn in the woods…
When her soul needs soothing… !

So for the first time in 3 years I am not doing anything but let my soul soothing in one of the greatest cities in the world. Although It´s hard to admit that I desperately needed a break I am also proud of the fact that I knew when enough was enough.

I want to thank you for so many great inspirations in 2007 and looking forward to reading or maybe seeing you in 2008, who knows....;-) in some hot SATC shoes ... in a hot city in Asia...

Hi Shamash! a rather late Happy New Year (or on time, if you're looking at it from the Chinese New Year perspective)Hope you are well and wishing you a wonderful '08 :-)


Hey, Jeremy, Hyacinth, the bluest eye, and Tish:

Well, here in this corner of the world Chinese New Year is, indeed, fast approaching. So, I get another chance to keep my resolutions, and so do you! :-)

Good to hear from you, my dear friends. Happy Year of the Rat!

Happy Year of the Rat. I stopped to see what was new in your world.


I just discovered your blog through Princess Haiku, Shamash, and am so happy to have done so. Have you chosen this title in recognition of the Hannukah menorah (the Hannukia)? Just curious! I also wanted to comment on your charming bear pictures above, which brought to mind one of my favorite little rhymes (in a dark sort of way) from childhood called "Infant Innocence" from A. E. Housman. It goes as follows:

The Grizzly Bear is huge and wild;
He has devoured the infant child.
The Infant Child is not aware
It has been eaten by the bear.

Are you alive? God, I've been worried about you for the last 14 days. It's gotta be hell on earth there. Please let me know how you are.... Kerry


Hey, Kerry!

Thanks for checking in. I am, indeed, okay. Seven of my three-story-high trees fell away from my house. The whole city is devastated: no power, electric, or internt.

I just arrived back in the states to do some fundraising.
