Happy New Year to all Photine readers near and far. I am always hopeful for each new year to bring happiness, a sense of peace, and maybe one day that long awaited love. I have a good feeling about 2009. Last year I was just beginning to deal with stuff that started at the end of 2007, but I have come to terms with almost all of it. Learning to let go and not care what other people think was a big step.
