Where I am it's 9:30 a.m. on the day of New Year's Eve, But I'll still pass along hopes for a better new year!

Here's to 2018! [In reply to] Can't Post

And there's a hand my trusty fiere, and gie's a hand o' thine. We'll tak a richt guid willie waucht for auld lang syne. (And here's a hand my trusty companion, and give me a hand of yours. We'll take a fine goodwill drink for old long ago.)

Happy New Year to you most excellent TORnfolk!

Where now the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?
Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?
Where is the hand on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing?
Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing?
They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow;
The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow....

Midnight is 10 1/2 hours away here in Boston, and we may not have fireworks due to the extreme cold, but I found this photo of Sydney's celebration today, and it makes a great photo with those varied colors and dramatic setting (my new background photo on my laptop). May 2018 bring good things to everyone, everywhere.

Mmph. [In reply to] Can't Post

A few of my neighbours have the uncanny ability of setting off fireworks just when I get to bed. It wouldn't be so bad if they did it pretty much at the same time but last night's efforts were stretched over 90 minutes - I'd start to doze off again when *bang*, another lot would start off.

That weary-eyed grump aside, happy 2018! I wish everyone a happy year with a couple of good surprises thrown in. Smile

8.30pm? When it's still light? [In reply to] Can't Post

Bit of a waste of fireworks, really - but good news for you! :)

My neighbours finally stopped at 12.30am.

About five or six years ago I had midnight fireworks, a burn-out outside my house at 1am and then a couple of hours later, an earthquake. I clearly wasn't meant to get much sleep that night.

I don't know if Starling is also in the Northern Hemisphere, but remember that it's winter here. The sun has set long before 8 p.m. here in western New York.

Best wishes for 2018 to all TORn folk.

I was asleep well before midnight. :) I woke bright and early, though, so the year is off to a fair start.

Right now it's mostly dark about 9/9.15pm (or a bit later further south).

It's almost here, and anyone who's just south of me out in the open in Times Square is out of their mind, it's in the single-digit degrees F here.

2018 has reached us on the West Coast and is on its way across the Pacific. I look forward to another year of fun and fellowship with all of you!

Silverlode

Roads go ever ever on
Under cloud and under star
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows green
And trees and hills they long have known.

Happy New Year to all here! [In reply to] Can't Post

2017 ended with me back to work almost full time (a position opened up at the pharmacy where I work) along with my first foray into grad school classes. I wasn't able to hand off some of my volunteer responsibilities before it all hit so this fall has been very very busy.

But I've missed the fun here!

Here's to a very wonderful and Happy New Year to all!

may we all be delightfully surprised during the coming year! [In reply to] Can't Post

We've had one delightful surprise already: a young woman in my family who has been trying to get pregnant for over a decade . . . IS! She works in early childhood education and her husband teaches middle schoolers and they both want to be parents more than anything - they have been marvelous as an uncle and an aunt, even though she confessed to me that it's been painful to watch all their siblings on both sides pop the babies out, so they are over the moon and we're all overjoyed for them.

I think I finally understand "overjoyed." You're not just happy, you're somewhere way beyond that.

I am a dreamer of words, of written words. I think I am reading; a word stops me. I leave the page. The syllables of the words begin to move around … The words take on other meanings as if they had the right to be young.
