New year, new beginnings


You have not heard from me for almost a year, but I have read your blogs, more or less. 2016 happened to be not one of these nice or normal years. People got sick and died, that included my dog, my special friend. And it affected me, more than expected. Or, none of this was expected. Now it is a new year, and the future starts to look bright again. My best wishes to all, may 2017 be a really good one!

Two of these pictures are from just a couple of days ago. One is just a memory.

  5. Best wishes for a productive and satisfying 2017, and sorry about your very nice-looking dog. Offering much and asking little in return, they do come to mean a lot to us, sometimes more than the people we know.


  6. You and your ultra-sensitive photos have been missed. I am so sorry that you’ve had a challenging year. The end of your post made me think of this song, which gave me comfort once when disappointments clouded my days…

    may 2017 bring better days…


  7. So sorry about your loss, Bente. I’ve been wondering about you actually, and I was hoping that everything was fine. Sometimes life turns out not quite what we expected, but there’s always tomorrow we can look forward to. Wishing you a better, more kind year to come!


  8. So sorry to hear of your loss, Bente, I know that your dog was a cherished friend. It is good to be quiet and contemplative in times of loss. Welcome to the New Year, it is wonderful to see you. May it shine for you.


  9. Happy New Year. I am very sorry about the passing of your dog: I still miss mine, who died in June 2012. It hurt me so much, I was unable to scatter his ashes and I still have them in a ginger jar 4 years on.
    I do hope that 2017 will be a better year for you and everyone else. I think it will go down in history as one of the worst years since WW2.
    All the best and hope to hear from you soon again. 💗
