Happy New Year!

A little less than ten hours to go here. Think I’ll wander out to First Night in Tacoma, and check out the world’s shortest parade.   I’m so glad that my city decided to continue this tradition.  Giant puppets, music, free admittance to the city’s museums . . . I love it!

I wish all of you peace and prosperity in the coming year.  I hope we will all make resolutions to be better and do more good, and I hope that I will succeed at keeping mine better than I have in previous years!

Farewell 2011, Hello 2012!

  1. I was at First Night too! I drove my kid brother nuts by criticizing the dragon on the grounds that it was premature.

    Best wishes for the new year.

  2. I loved the fire breathing dragon! I took some photos, but they didn’t really come out very well.

    I really enjoyed watching the mobile hot-shop that the glass museum set up. And the fire juggler and flaming hoops person. There was one stilt walker that I saw.

    I really wish we had had more street vendors, like they do for the farmer’s market. It would have been great to get a quick bite or a hot cup of coffee right there.

    But unless I want to jump in and volunteer, I really shouldn’t complain!

    And as a Dragon, I’m fine with Tacoma welcoming the Year of the Dragon a bit early!

  3. Hi Robin !

    I just wanted to tell you that my best Christmas present this year was the lovely Christmas card you have sent me. As a friend said, it’s even better than an autographed book. I was so happy to receive it !
    I hope everything is going well for you.

    Best regards,

    Cécile.
