A New Canvas

A new beginning! It is a wonderful thing to have a fresh start, a clean slate.  Now I must determine what I want to create on this canvas of a new year.

I want to have it show a life lived with happiness and peace, a time of creativity, made up of memories that bring a smile to my heart.

I know that there will be trouble and heartache, too.  They are necessary. For as in any painting, there must be shadows to make the beauty stand out, life must have its lows to make us realize the wonder of the good times.

So, today I start the painting of my life that will be 2013.  I look forward to it being a true work of art that will touch many.
