It has been wonderful watching things emerge from under the snow and ice. The new year starts in January, but I think that’s only to give us something to celebrate during the dark winter months. This is the new year, new life, more light. I love the days getting longer, the sun on my face. Nothing helps your mood more than a walk, between the air, the sun and the exercise, it is a sure way the beat the blues. This is Michigan, we never know what we will get tomorrow, so go out and take a walk. Enjoy the sun while it shines, and breathe some fresh air. It will do you good.
