Well, we’ve made another trip around the sun, just one of the possible significances of this year’s new year card image.  In a break from historical practice, rather than using a photograph of some kind, I hand-painted one of these circles on each card.  Yes, I still insist on sending paper cards even though every year it gets more expensive to mail them and harder to gather the snail addresses of online friends. Whether you get a paper one or are just looking at this on your screen, I hope you enjoy it.


Happy new year everybody!
