Boy I sure hope your wish comes true though a few good things happened too.

Cool piece, neat idea, too!

Thanks! I know - there are some great things which happened - but the year was overall hard on us.

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Yup, it was. A tough one for sure.

Andrea said...

I am looking forward to the new year. Happy happy to all of you!

Mike Kline said...

Yes! Me too. I just think about the insanity of world suffering and how it seems, "When America thinks its suffering, the rest of the world's reality is real pain." Sad really! We really do live in Disney Land!

Too bad everyone can't travel and see what it is like elsewhere, especially in the poorer nations. Too bad some of them can't have what we throw away everyday.

Sometimes the decadence of our life here horrifies me.

Yes, you're right Mike. Happy New Year to everyone here ate the Moleskine exchange - I feel very fortunate to be inspired and collaborate and be a part of this wonderful group of individuals. Here's to us!

Ian, my daughter in Glouscester said UK petrol was down to 80 pence per liter and heavy tax burdens were reduced - which is super cool. I am not sure cheap petrol is the answer, but it sure drives well.

ian russell said...

yes, Mike, it's been up and down like a yo-yo. at the moment it's down but as the pound loses its buying power I expect it'll be up again before long. it'll all end in tears one day. I think I might buy a horse and cart!

I used to skateboard from Fairford to Swindon and back every weekend from 1985-1987 before buying a car! Skateboards work well.

If you have the skill for them--I did used to skateboard many years ago when we made skateboards from boards and roller skates.

Now I think I'd walk or bike.
