Here we have come to the last of of 2019 and the last day of the decade. It’s tempting to look back at the past’s challenges and victories, but I prefer to focus on the future.
This photo of Camellia japonica ‘Debutante’ perfectly captures my optimism for the future. I am grateful for Gary and Christina for the gift of this flower from my former garden. It points to the potential beauty that we can experience in the next year, the next decade.
To that end, my Arranger and I want to wish all a most prosperous and meaningful New Year. The greatest aim in my prayers is for peace, peace among people and peace among nations.
