Gratitude

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything thy goodness sends.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Happy New Year everyone
Click on the Sky Watch Link to see what 100s of bloggers from all over the world have found in their view of the sky to share with us this week. 2011 dawned with the welcomed arrival of a patch of blue sky, hopes for many good things including travelling again - soon.

A peek into a travel journal I am working on for Tattered Angels in shades of bubblegum, sunshine and golden goddess.
