Day 2556: New Year’s Eve

For a long time, my New Year’s Eve tradition has been to compile  a list of my personal ten best and worst of the year.

This year’s best includes

This year’s worst includes

  • the death of close friends,
  • how divided my country is and
  • all the time I spent on worry and dread.

Do you see any evidence of  my best and worst in these new end-of-year photos?

























I also put musician Jacob Collier on my personal best list for 2019 and it’s the best that I’ll be seeing him perform live in 2020!

It’s best to start planning for the best of 2020 and not to worry about a thing.

What’s your personal best and worst of 2019?

The best way for me to end this post is to express gratitude to all  who have supported me through another year of daily blogging, including YOU!


Happy New Year!

    THE WEDDING PICTURES!!! Thank you for posting all those lovely pictures. I don’t have a best and worst list but your wedding pictures made today the best for me. And I really like your officiant’s yellow shoes!! Happy new year Ann and wishes for more love, lots of music, and all those things that you love.

  8. Your wedding to Michael is understandably a highlight of your year–both Michael and Aaron have been highlights of your year as long as they’ve been part of your life–but I hope your show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival is also a highlight of your year.

  9. I like your best and worst lists. Our worst lists are pretty much the same, and our bests both include cooking, friends and blogging. Your wedding pictures are fabulous. Best wishes for a new year with less worry and dread and more good things!
