The Happy End

Cold, misty, and trying to rain. Carmine lies sleeping, like a cat curled up on a sofa.

New Year is the time when we are urged to think of new beginnings, new resolutions, new good intentions (with which to pave the road to hell, no doubt). But if there are beginnings there must somewhere be endings. As Seneca wrote, “Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end.”


Today, I wish you auspicious beginnings, and whatever happy endings your heart desires.

The photo captures the essence that is carmine. A superb angle on it, in its winter glory!

Was that your house perched on the cliff? Wow! Very exciting.

Michelle said...

Is this the end? Where are you?

Bev said...

Happy New Year Louise!!! I always enjoy your wit, your prose and the accounts of your entire family (includes feathered and four legged members). I hope 2010 will be even better in every way.

At the end of the year I was given a blogger award and have in turn listed A View from Carmine Superiore to receive it as well. Stop by to pick it up when you can (Jan 6 posting Romancing Italy)
