Truly inspiring. I specificaly like the one from Ivy Baker Priest. It's profoundly true. you never no what's the begining and what's the end. but i guess it's our job to always try to make it a new begining.
Shana Tovah. May we be blessed with a year full of new beginings!

clarity is the new thing I've learnt to pray for; revealed blessing is next.

..and even though i don't comment often, thank you for the constant reminders, the gentle prodding-thru-blogging [that we may or may not realize], the yep-i'm-going-through-that-too-and-it's-totally-normal attitude, and the fresh spin on life. Paradigm-shifts are what we need sometimes to dislodge us from ourselves.

gmar tov & revealed blessing to all.

<3, flor
