Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, everybody!

Let's be honest here folks. Last year was a bit hectic. Hopefully this year will not involve losing jobs faster than they can be found. I don't expect 2010 to be completely smooth sailing, but if we're lucky, some of last year's hard work just might start to pay off. Which would be nice.

A few months back, I visited a nature reserve where they recently upgraded the facilities. As with many upgrades, this improvement involved paving a perfectly happy forest so that access is improved for people trying to escape the urban jungle.

Pouring asphalt is generally detrimental to the ecosystem of the forest floor. But at least in this particular case a bracken fern was too stubborn to quit. May this be an omen to the rest of us.

Nature always finds a way. Happy New Year, upside-down friend!
