Happy New Year

Oh the blank page of a brand new year ... and it starts on Monday lol
I love beginnings.   I've never really done resolutions, but this year I'm being more open to intentions and plans that may or may not happen... nothing set in stone apart from work commitments and some delightful tours to look forward to but lots of wishes.  The top of my list is energy and health - sometimes my head wants to do much more than my energy will allow and then it's much more appealing to fall in a heap in front of the tele - and that's the big thing that I want to change.

I wish you and yours a beautiful New Year filled with peace, joy, good health and happiness.

There will be lots of adventures, ups and downs, roads to travel and songs to sing.   Perhaps our paths will cross in the real world, but if not, then I certainly look forward to meeting up with you here from time to time.

Blessings and lots of love.


  1. Hi Phil...
    Thank you for your thoughtful wishes. Wishing you a very happy New Year too.. filled with blessings with your hopes and goals coming to fulfillment.


  2. Happy New Year. I like the promise of a clean slate too.

  3. Happy New Year to you too & hope 2018 is kind. I wonder where your work commitments will take you this year, but I'll be following your travels via blogland & hope your energy returns, though I also find I plan way too much, thinking I'm still about 30 instead of more than double that. Take care & huggles.

  4. Happy new year - here is to a peaceful, kind and loving 2018 x

  5. Hi Fil - all the very best to the two of you ... for another successful year with all your projects - Happy New Year too ... cheers Hilary

  6. Such a beautiful song, dear Fil... always such a beautiful voice and emotion... I really agree with you about the new beginning of the year and on a Monday! And yes, the head sets for so many things and the body energy doesn't allow all... it happens to me :) But I hope you change that, dear Fil, as it is one of your wishes. I am not such a fan of new year's resolutions, but I may have to set some... :) I hope you have a wonderful year, with all what your heart wishes, dear friend! Hugs and kisses!

  7. Lovely wishes, lovely song! Wishing you a wonderful year Fil filled with vibrant health and energy and gentle balance as well, and many many delights.
