A Year of Healing
Our wishes for the new year will sometimes be dictated by those previous highlights of the old, and - looking back at the news headlines of 2006 - maybe it is pertinent to hope that this year will be a year of healing.
Let us hope that strife is lessened and that the trek to respect begins in 2007 - with ourselves, each other and the world in which we live.
I also want to thank all those - almost three hundred in total - who sent me seasonal messages or cards this year. Even though I do not personally send such greetings, I am still amazed that this blog, now in its third year, still gets the response it does.
I have accepted these warm wishes with a full heart. On behalf of the other writers and friends that have contributed to Tarkan Deluxe, I thank you.
The best present I can give to you is this blog.
The best present you can give to me is to do your utmost to try and lead long and healthy lives - full of the joy that we can find in even the smallest things, as long as we take the time to look.
See you all in 2007.
