Beginings and endings

Janus, the Roman god of gates and doorways, past and future.

Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.
- Alfred Lord Tennyson

A very happy New Year to all.

Lots of love!

Dearest HOBAC,

I've lost my path of late, but hope Janus will see his way to remedy my poor manners by admitting this errant wanderer.

Wishing you boundless joy in the days to come.
