The above quote is from Alfred Lord Tennyson and I like it for the start to 2018. 2017 seems to have been a ‘non’ year for most of our friends and family; neither successful nor unsuccessful but a drumming on of life. I hope that negative habits can be put aside for at least one new positive habit, less stress and more joy. With all that is happening on the world arena, I also hope that we can move forward this year with understanding, tolerance and love for our fellow earthlings.
Christoph and I had a very full 2017 but overall, we think that it was a good one for us. We try to find quiet when we can and indulge in the little things that make us happy, eg. whenever we go to our Berlin apartment, we love that the tap water is potable! It’s the appreciation for the little things that make us realise how lucky we are :o)
