The Intensity of Dance as the New Year Approaches

Swirling lights illuminate a future with promise that remains unknown, the moment is what matters now, the world celebrates, the ball drops, fireworks explode, the Change is hoped for, the sound is deafening, we went all in this time.  Memories last a lifetime.

Last year's calender pages fly out windows in Financial District, covering the street like paper snow, crowds cheer, drink softens hard edges, trees are recycled and here comes another year as the winds blow through our concrete canyons
