New Year’s Eve

Tonight, while soft breeze of southern summer rustles small waves across the bay and countless lights break over the harbor, brand New Year will wash on our shores,

Under the blossoming Pohutukawa tree. pohutukawa

Still unwrapped from its shiny gift wrap,

Unknown, and thus full of promise, full of hope.

For a year better than the one departing,

For a year better than those already departed.

Until the time of departure returns once more,

In the endless circle of time.

May a New Year be kind to us all,

so we may all remember that;

‘One needs Power only when one wants to do something Harmful, otherwise Love is Enough to Get Everything Done!’ (Charlie Chaplin)

    1. Many, many thanks my friend! It is always such pleasure to ‘see’ you under the Lantern … thank you for your kindness and your support!

      Wishing you all the best in 2014, and many more years to come … love, joy and happiness above all!



  1. Preko sveg tog mora i svih tih ravnica i gora, šaljem ti prvo želje za dobrim zdravljem jer onda se nekako i sve ostalo posloži pa i te poruke sa svim najljepšim i najboljim željama koje bi se trebale ostvariti u življenju nadolazeće kalendarske godine.
    Stay beautiful 🙂
