A New Year

Ngā mihi o te Tau Hou ki a koutou katoa

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year

I want to open this year with a favourite poetry video I found on You Tube, of my beloved country

2010 is going to be a big challenge for me. A few different challenges actually,which will take up time and energy. 2010 will be a time of oppertunities and change and it makes me feel excited and fearful at the same time. To move forwards you will have to invest.  I will also be even less online but writing the occasional poem and making pictures is relaxation for me, so  it won't dissappear. I've tried that once to cut it out but my heart is in there so it will stay a part of my life. I am ready however to achieve what I planned to achieve,take on the challenges. From time to time I know I will fall down, but I am prepared to stand up again and go into the direction to achieve my goals with a smile. I hope you do too.



  1. No journey is easy, if it's to be fulfilling. Good luck on your plans.

  2. best of luck along the way. I am sure you will achieve what you set out to do.

  3. A Happy New Year to you Maria! I thought you had stopped blogging, but pleased you haven't!

  4. Mogen al je wensen en voornemens vervuld worden, dat is wat ik je toewens. Veel geluk en voorspoed toegewenst Marja.
