There are two kinds of people in the world:
1. those who would go to Times Square for New Years Eve, and those who couldn’t be paid enough to go…
2. those who go out for New Year Eve, and those who stay home…
3. those who would rehab an old vacant house, and those who would look for a new one instead…
6. those who love city streets, and those who love dirt roads…
7. those who stay, and those who go…
8. those who love snow, and those who, uhmm… don’t…
9. those who take naps, and those who feel superior to those who take naps…
10. those who believe and those who scoff…
11. those who look up and those who look down…
12. those who eat their fruits and vegetables, and those who eat their meat’n potatoes…
13. those whose glass is half-empty and those whose glass is half-full…
At different times in our lives, we can be any of these.
Me? I have been all these people–a city lover, a country girl, a scoffer, a believer, an optimist, a pessimist, a dreamer, a doer…
Can we remember this?
Can we remember that our differences make this beautiful world what it is?
Can we let go of our prejudices, our prides, our preconceptions, our (fill in the blank here)… and love each other?
I wish you joy and love in 2013.

Well said!! Happy New Year! Much joy and love to you, too!!
Thank you! I love it when people visit and comment. That lets me know they were here. Blessings on your 2013.
Ahw.. that picture with the ladder. It looks so endearing and dangerous at the same time. Wonderful post!
Happy New Year!
Hubby, Mr.H.C. is very safety-aware. He says he was absolutely balanced and it wasn’t dangerous at all. But he has lived on ladders all his life. Thanks for the visit and good cheer!
“At different times in our lives, we can be any of these”
How very true… it is what makes me not give up, the versatility of our inner worlds
It is true. I used to think I was wishy-washy, but there’s value in “seeing anew”. And then of course, our outer world changes can affect us as well. It’s all what makes life an adventure…
Your first sentence made me laugh out loud!! A very happy new year to you!!
Thank you! Glad you laughed. Currently I’m in the group that would need to be paid, but at one time I would have gone… Ah Youth…
A beautiful New Year’s post Carol. I love the pictures. Happy new Year to you and Michael. All our love.
Thank you Nancy. A 2013 filled with strength, joy, and love to you.
Great message!! Happy New Year.
Thanks Patty! And to you and Gary as well.
I like this message – and great pictures. [But don’t get too attached to those lovely wine glasses… :) ]
I already wrapped them back up in newspaper. They do take a pretty picture though!
