Having just spent the holiday season catching up of little things around the place and not quite getting anything completely done, we finally decided to spend the first day of the year doing nothing. How about that! Now that's something different for us. We ended up driving down to South Point to greet the first day of the year, its first sunrise and its companion sunset, plus a bonus -- a full moon.
We were invited to numerous gatherings today, but spending time at South Point seemed like the right thing to do. One is not completely away from civilization down there, but it's easy to disconnect and block out everything but the geography and nature around you. I always feel better after spending time there.
