We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, 
drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. 
Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through 
the rooms of our lives… not looking for flaws, but for potential.

Wishing you a very happy New Year, from our house to yours. May your dreams and resolutions all come true, and may you find even more of your elusive ancestors in 2012!
