A New Day

It's a new day, in a new month in a nearly new year.

February is my favourite month of the year.

Why? - well it used to mean the start of the school year and the end to the long school holidays with four energetic kids to keep an eye on, - and therefore some time to myself. And even tho' my kids are now grown that emotion of relief still lingers;

it means great warm weather in Noosa, the days are still long and we can paddle before dusk and watch the sun slip below Mt Cooroy on our homeward run;

it means the town is back to normal after the influx of tens of thousands of holiday makers over summer. Thank you for coming but goodbye for now...;

it has traditionally been a time for new starts - classes begin, courses start, new study commenced, projects are undertaken, those new year's resolutions are put into practice.

It is a time for new beginnings, it is a time of promise...

It's a new day in the mornin'
Anything is possible, it's all good.
For a brief shinin moment,
Everything is wonderful,
Knock on wood
knock on wood.

The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band


  1. good morning to a new day ... ..I have lived in Noosa for a while many moons ago..and i was overwhelmed with joy when in the far distance whales where passing..Noosa has this memory for me along with a few others.

  2. Hello Mona - Aren't we lucky to have the opportunity to live in this amazing place...yes whales pass every winter on their way to and from the breeding grounds around Hervey Bay.

  3. I got to see the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band live years ago.

    May your new beginnings be fruitful!

  4. I love the term "new beginnings" - every day is a new beginning really - so what is on the agenda of your new beginnings for 2009 Delwyn - another trip to Hawaii?

  5. Dan: I haven't seen them perform but would love to - so much energy

  6. Alden: How weird - looks like I'm not moving into feb after all. This post now says Jan 31 at the header, how could that have happened?!!!!

  7. Alden : I have bugs in the blog!!!

    Anyway as to new beginnings for me: To appreciate every day, every friend, every family member, every experience... with new vigour

  8. Alden - Ok found a 'post options' where I could change it. For some reason it took the draft date with it...

  9. I wrote a post on Mindful Heart responding to this post, here, on A New Day. My wife and I are now enrolled in a course called Awakening Joy.

    Your blog nudged me from thinking about enrolling and getting to the keyboard and taking the plunge. Thank you, Delwyn.

  10. Dan: I love the way this great communication machine encourages and inspires people all around the globe. I am glad my 'new day' musings have prompted you to take action.
