Bonne Année /Happy New Year 2011!

Here I have shown old two-faced Janus, the Roman god of doorways and portals, and hence, by extension, the End of the Old Year and the Start of the New. He's where we get January from (my month!).

He is often depicted with his symbols of a key (to unlock the door) and a cock (to crow the new dawn).

2010 was a mixed bag for me. I had many great times and have made some wonderful new friends, as well as making great strides in my work. But I also embarked on a certain venture which caused me a lot of anxiety and sleepless nights, and which I am so glad to have behind me (NOT my Advent Calendar, which, though stressful, was also great fun!) . A lesson well-learnt!

I would like to wish everyone an exciting, delightful, love-filled and prosperous New Year. Here's to 2011. Bonne Année à tous!

Not quite sure how I got here, but I quite enjoyed the advent calendar. The Spider cave story was my favorite.

A Happy New Year to you!
