A little belated, but it's still January, right? (Certainly an improvement over a few years ago, when I sent out my "Happy first quarter of the year" wishes in March.) I send out New Year's cards mainly to remind my business contacts that I'm still here, and also catch up with the friends I was too busy to greet at the beginning of that other year back in September. This time around it was easy to pick something about which I was happy and hopeful. I took the photo on election day eve, and the text is by Willa Cather:
"The sky was as full of motion and change as the desert beneath it was monotonous and still—and there was so much sky, more than at sea, more than anywhere else in the world."
