“JANUARY ……… The start of three hundred and sixty-five sun kissed mornings and starlit evenings, 52 weeks filled with potential, 12 months bursting with promise. This is the time to dream, to look forward to the year ahead and to journey within, to reflect on cherished memories and withdraw from the past. New beginnings beckon to recreate our life journey through vision, change and discovery. Come, let this NEW YEAR weave her glorious spell”Anon
