Happy New Year, a Postcard

Time has been transformed, and we have changed; it has advanced and set us in motion. It has unveiled its face, inspiring us with bewilderment and exhilaration. ~Kahlil Gibran, Lebanese poet

(Thank you, 2012, for your abundant gifts. You gave me Lebanon, and for that I will be forever grateful. Happy New Year to all of you! May you be graced with a year filled with change and exhilaration.)
