opens at the close

When one year ends another one inevitably starts.

I am always encouraged by this. What didn't come to pass last year I can always hope for again in the next.

More than hope for-I can work for those things I want so badly. Because like Ms. Maldonado said, "If you want to be a painter, make sure you paint every day."
