“Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky,
The flying cloud, the frosty light:
The year is dying in the night;
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.
Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true…”
~ Lord Alfred Tennyson, In Memoriam (Ring Out Wild Bells)
Whether 2011 was marked by heartbreak or hope, mourning or celebration, goodbyes or hellos or moving in the same direction, may you look back with gratitude and look forward with wonder. Happy New Year!
I might have gotten a little emotional watching this year in review from Google.
