Monday Morning – Fleetwood Mac.

The first day of the year was a rainy affair, sort of easing us out of the mess of 2016. I listened to the subdued tune, in a subdued mood, watching the cleansing rain come down outside. Later in the day, the ground became a most wonderfully shimmering reflection of the city lights.
Despite all the worldly chaos that has happened this past year, my last week of it was a peaceful and happy. Celebrating Christmas with the family was a lovely way to kiss the year goodbye. I hope everyone else got the chance to be with loved ones and throw all cares aside for a day or two.

“So we beat on, boats against the current.” –The Great Gatsby

Goodbye 2016 – still wearing a party hat because life is a party.
