Happy New Year

Father Dragon and his dwarves are getting ready to welcome 2016. I'm receiving it different than all the past years. For the very first time in my life and due to different circumstances I'll be alone tonight. It sounds sad but it is really a blessing in disguise. I see it that way. God will be my guest and we will be able to hold some long due conversation. 2015 has been difficult, hard and with accidents. It broke and twisted my dragon heart in many ways and in all directions but I've learned from all that. I think that's the most important thing of all.

It doesn't matter if one gets lost in the way if in the end we find ourselves. Although we are not the same persons as before, if we are better somehow, it makes the experience worthy regardless how painful it was. I died this year and from my utter ruins I'm recreating myself.  I am definitively not the same dragon but after deep thought I've come to the conclusion I have grown a better version of myself.

I thank the stones in my way, the abysses I fell into and climbed up, the darkness, the chaos and the night. I thank the obstacles, doubts and tears. All of those things have helped me grow. They provided the challenge to grow stronger, a bit wiser and less hard on myself. They provided the opportunity to know me and my foundations better and also realize that no matter how much of my world crumbles down, I'll keep true to my honor and it will raise me up again from under the debris.

Happy New Year, Father Dragon.
Happy New Year, my beloved Ninja Muse and awesome dwarves.
Happy New Year, world!


  1. All those pitfalls just make us stronger on the other side.
    Hope you and God have a heartfelt conversation tonight. I'll be thinking about you.
    Here's to a much better 2016, my friend.

  2. Wishing you, your muse, and the dwarfs all the best in the New Year and saying a prayer for God blessing you with a joyous, prosperous, and Happy New Year!

  3. I hope the coming year is much, much kinder to you.
    Here's to a fire and treasure filled 2016. And love and laughter.

  4. No one ever promised the journey would be easy. We learn along the way even if we stumble. It is our inner strength that helps us stand again. You know creator talks to us in many ways. Just be open to the conversation and you might be surprised at what you discover.

    Bright Blessings!
    Peace, Light and love...

    A toast to a Happy and Wondrous New Year! May 2016 be the year of awakening...

  5. Hi Al,

    And I'm typing this from the New Year. Just over an hour into the new year and I'm determined to focus on the promise of a new hope on our planet so out of sorts.

    Tonight, my kind friend, you are not alone and yes, you can see that although you may be there amongst your thoughts, your thoughts are reflective, are powerful, are profound. For the lessons you have learnt over the last year will make you all the stronger in the most positive of ways.

    Bless you and all the dwarfs. A peaceful, hopeful, loving New Year, my amazing friend.


  6. Wishing you a much better New Year too dear dragon. I hope it will be a happier and healthier one. Su abuela con muchos abrazos

  7. Isn't the best steel forged in the hottest fires? You're so right, our trials strengthen and sharpen us. After 2015, you should be darned near invulnerable with your steely dragon scales!

    Prayers that 2016 brings a multitude of blessings!

  8. Happy New Year, Al! May this next year be a blessing to you as you've been to so many in the community. Happy 2016, my friend. :)
