Treasures from the past can transport us to a Paradise of days gone by. For my husband, that was time in the garage restoring his BMX Supergoose bicycle. I met him when he rode it new so to see this bike restored to former glory days allowed both of us to savor moments from decades past. The delight in this restoration was the thrill from its new owner, our daughter. She LOVES her new bike, trying tricks (much to my mommy heart’s horror…yes, I confess, I watch them holding my breath!), and hollering the all too familiar phrase, “Mom! Watch me!” We spent the first day of 2015 in a place I consider a Paradise, by the Pacific Ocean, riding bikes and basking in the shining sea and sun. To share in the excitement a New Year brings is certainly a moment in the layers of Paradise. Hope you are bringing in this brand New Year in a way that reminds you of Paradise. If you didn’t, what are you waiting for? Go do it! And maybe, you, too, will be fortunate enough to bring a treasure of the past along with you.
