Year of Culebra!

While not officially beginning until February 10th, this year in the Chinese calendar is the Year of the Snake, which of course means it is the Year of Culebra, or Culebra de Anos. Or maybe it's Anos de Culebra; my Spanish grammar is mala.

However it is said, in whatever language, I'm going to look on it as a good sign for Culebra, for our struggles to keep her out of the hands of those who would use her beauty for their own greed regardless of the destruction they would bring upon her.

And that pretty much sums up my wishes for all of us, everywhere. Up with beauty and peace, down with greed and corruption in 2013, for you and yours, our neighborhoods, our countries, our Earth. That should keep everyone busy for awhile.

I'll be in the plaza with our Culebra family and friends, doing the New Year's Eve walkabout to places varied and celebrating. Where ever you are, quietly bringing in the New Year on a mountain top or in the middle of Times Square, across the sea where the party will be over long before ours has started, or out at sea in timeless land, I wish you all the best of good things in this New Year. Thank you for all of your support, patience, kind words, donations, corrections and caring this last year, dear readers! Happy New Year to you.

Have a make the most of your life this year Monday! Do something that matters.
