Year's End

The flip of the last calendar page of the year is a challenge with some weight, and this year’s close feels particularly fraught with challenge on all fronts. What to say? What to expect? We all have our hopes and dreams, projects and commitments. After days of soul-searching and page-turning and waiting for inspiration, I think I will simply close out Books in Northport 2009 with an image and a moment of silence.

Hello Pamela...Thanks for a good year of pictures and thoughts about our lives here in Northport, and yours at Dog Ears Book. The philosopher side of your identity always comes through so well, and I will miss starting my day with your blog over the winter. Have a good three months away...and think of us hearty folks left behind to shovel snow. :-) Hugs to Sarah. Karen

You know me. A moment of silence is just about the maximum I can manage. So good morning, happy New Year's Eve, nice trees. (Somebody got some new photo software for Christmas . . . ) Whatever we wish, 2010 will bring what it brings. But we will be up to the task. We are tough little beauties, we are.

Karen, it's true I will be gone from Northport but won't be absent from the blogosphere--just present fewer days per week from Florida--so check in now and then. Maybe you'll e-mail me a Northport Report once in a while? You know, how deep the snow is, how many snow days school has had, and other stuff like that.

Gerry, you tough little beauty, you, I am still making do with my old "Elements" software. Until I exhaust its limits (never?), I can't see that I need the full professional package.

I wish you both a pleasant evening and cheery midnight, wherever and however you will be spending it. But I must go now and make my sweet noodle kugel....
