Mosaic Monday - Snow

The Christmas tree is down, the presents are opened and
 the New Years celebrations are over. A new beginning starts.
It holds the promise of new lessons to be learned, new territory to be explored,
and old lessons to be recalled, practiced and appreciated.
Beginnings hold ambiguity, promise, fear and hope.
Let yourself begin anew.
Take along some humility and the lessons of the past.
Toss in some curiosity and excitement about what you haven't learned yet.
Say good-bye to those you are leaving behind.
But don't worry who you will meet or where you will go.
A new journey has begun. Let it be magical.
And what is more magical than snow.
 I opened the drapes yesterday and the snow
was gone. So I collected pictures from the archives to find you some snow.


I am joining Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.
You should stop by to see the fabulous mosaics everyone has.

Thanks for the visit.
Hope you have a great week!

Love the sentiment in your words ... and your mosaic. I can't wait for the magical journey through 2011 ... it's had a wet and soggy start here in north-east Queensland but that's nothing new!

I have really enjoyed seeing everyone's beautiful snow photos this past year! Beautiful collage. We are supposed to get some snow flurries tonight, but they will melt by tomorrow. Maybe in the morning if we still have flurries I can get some shots of our "desert snow!"

If you're missing the snow Jen, come up our way! We still have some and it snowed all day today.
Lovely mosaic and sentiments.

Happy New Year to you too. Yes a new book is opened for the year 2011, a book with blank pages. It is up to you and me to fill the pages with good and magical things.

This is a lovely mosaic! While it was nice to see the old snow go, it's pleasant to see a new dusting this morning. It looks so clean.

Your words above your mosaic touched my heart. All the best in 2011!
