A lit candle shines in the dark. Its light shines in memory of those left behind during the year and, looking ahead, it is our enduring symbol of hope. I think that we need hope, going into a new year. Hope that on a global scale the human race starts to behave itself a little better. The hope that this new year will be a peaceful and happy one for as many people as possible. I know that there will be millions whose fortunes will not change just because we tip from an old year into a new one, but hope springs eternal and my lit candle is keeping them, especially children, in my thoughts and holding them securely in mind.
I hope you will visit the running wave from time to time in 2014. Please leave your comments if you feel like it. I would love to hear from you. Thank you for visiting in 2013.
Happy New Year
