Message for the New Year 2016

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”80px-RWEmerson

― Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 to 1882)

Carolyn’s New Year note for 2016:  I saw  this Emerson quote posted at a holiday party recently, and thought it might be useful for us human beings in the 21st Century.  It’s Leap Year this year (February 29 is Leap Day for you ladies), and also U.S. Presidential Election year, very important to us here at Blog for Arizona.

Happy New Year!

Alles Gute zum Neuen Jahr (“Everything good  for the new year”, from my German husband).

Hau’oli Makahiki Hou, as we say in Hawaii.
