Hello, 2009

Happy New Year, everyone!


In my small world a lot has happened in 2008.  This year we have accomplished a lot of construction.  Jerry built an addition to the house that I sit in now. A new pantry is almost finished, and renovations to the house in Manley Hot Springs, AK were mostly done this summer.  I started a blog.  Fluffy, my daughter’s poodle, came to live with us (temporarily) and keeps Daisy, the other poodle, happy.  Gwen, a good island friend, moved to Alaska.  I started painting again.  I learned to play Mah Jongg.    


The coming year will bring some fascinating changes in the wider world.  Gone will be Bush and his henchmen.  Gone, I hope, their philosophy of greed, paranoia and superstition.


Will things change a lot with Obama?  Oh, I hope so.  Will this country be able to turn away from the frenzied consumerism that has increasingly pervaded it, and look more to its people and communities? I hope so.  That’s my wish for 2009.

    I wish you a healthy and productive 2009, Anne. As for a turning away from frenzied consumerism, I reckon that a worldwide recession should look after that for us all!

    I just realized how many years it has been since I played Mah Jong… close to 40!

    Happy New Year and enjoy taking down the Great Wall of China!
