Journey
I don’t know where I’m going
But, I sure know where I’ve been
Hanging on the promises
In songs of yesterday
An’ I’ve made up my mind
I ain’t wasting no more time
But, here I go again
Here I go again

It’s been quite a year. But it’s time to wrap it up in tissue and relegate it to the back of the cupboard along with all the other memories! And look with renewed hope and optimism at the coming year.

Here’s something really beautiful that a friend sent me and I’ve been listening to it again and again. It’s a beautiful chant and do get hold of it if you can…

Om Sarvesham swasthir bhavatu (May auspiciousness be unto all)
Sarvesham shantir bhavatu (May peace be unto all)
Sarvesham poornam bhavatu (May fullness be unto all)
Sarvesham mangalam bhavatu (May goodness be unto all)
Sarve bhavantu sukinaha (May everyone be happy)
Sarve santu niramiyaha (May everyone be without affliction)
Sarve bhadrani pashyantu (May everyone see only goodness)
Ma kashchit dukha bhak bhavet (Let none be the victim of suffering)
Asato ma sat gamaya (Lead me from the unreal to the real)
Tamaso ma jyotir gamaya (Lead me from darkness to light)
Mrtyor ma amritam gamaya (Lead me from death to immortality)
Om Poorna mada poorna midam (Om, that is full, this is full)
Poornad poorna mudachyate (From that full, this full is removed)
Poornasaya poornamadaya Poornameva vasishyate (Yet the full remains full always)
Loka Samasta Sukhino Bhavantu (May the whole world attain peace & harmony)
Om Shanti, shanti, shanti

Wishing all of you an awesome, rocking 2007!!!
