BEGINNING AGAIN...


CLIFFS, FISCAL AND CREATIVE, TRY NOT TO GET DISTRACTED OR STYMIED; CAN WE NOT SEE THEM AS OPPORTUNITIES TO GROW...TO SOAR?


A CHANCE TO INHALE, PAUSE,  RETHINK, REFRESH AND REKINDLE YOUR CREATIVE POWER AND START ANEW...




TIME TO TRIM BACK; JETTISON THE BITS THAT BUG YOU FROM THE LAST YEAR, RE-CALIBRATE, SHED YOUR CARES, GATHER YOUR STICKS AND GET YOUR DUCKS IN A ROW.  PLUNGE INTO THAT ICY HIGH SIERRA LAKE (OR SOME EQUIVALENT) AND COME OUT SHIVERING, ELECTRIFIED AND REFURBISHED, AND PLOW FORTHRIGHTLY INTO THAT NEW AND SHINY YEAR THAT HOLDS SO MUCH PROMISE!


THINK NEW THOUGHTS, BRING NEW PURPOSE


COMMIT!


COME ALONG, SMILE, BASK IN THE GLOW OF YOUR CREATIVITY...


ITS A WHOLE NEW YEAR...AND THE BEST IS YET TO COME.

BEST TO YOU AND YOURS!
