These are the beautiful clouds of yesterday afternoon taken from my windowsill. I have yet to catch a sunrise in 2011 but I imagine it will come soon enough. In the meantime, all is grace.
And the first book of 2011 is John Banville’s The Infinities which I found, hardbound for just a hundred bucks off a store that sells old knick-knacks and then some.
His first line is so beautiful: Of the things we fashioned for them that they might be comforted, dawn is the one that works.
Now that’s the way to usher in a new year.
