A happy new year always started with the sharing of food, of the dishes that sang to our souls. We shared with family and community - showing that our blessings were theirs too.

A happy new year is built not from the obvious ornaments, yet from the lights of our eyes and soul-bonds.

A happy new year for us was a long table, good food and family card games until almost midnight. After that it was dancing, it was the joy of being ridiculous in a place you were loved enough for such freedom to blossom.

A happy new year was partly about turning a fresh new page in life and partly a journey of gratitude for all goodness that had been bestowed that year. It was a welcoming of new fortunes and a fortitude to meet challenges with good grace and a heart of love.
