If you remember my first blog post you  know I am a person who likes to reminiscen. To think of the past…of all the good things and all the bad things. Hey, I didn’t call my blog Le Temps Jadis for nothing.

This week I realised that another decade is drawing to an end. Do you remember back in 1999 when we were worried about the millennium bug, it all seems such a short time ago.

And oh so many things have happened in this past decade. In this beautiful and troubled world.  If I may recall just one date, September 11th, 2001.

And on a personal level. I gained a love, lost a father and a father in law. I bought a house (and got a mortgage as a bonus ;-)
I started a blog……

I think I I speak the truth if I say these things have changed me. I am not the person I was on december 31th 1999. And I think I can say it made me a better person.

How about you? Do you look back at the past 10 years with mixed feelings like I do?

Have a nice turn of the year. See you in 2010!

  1. So what does Le Temps Jadis mean?
    Why have I never asked you that?

    You started this blog in 2001? Oh my.. you are a good one if you did.. and your still going.

    I agree with your thoughts.
    I know I'm a better person than I was then.. and I think we always have room for growth beauty..:)

    You were one of my very first ( not known in the real life blogging friends ) back in 2007/2008.. and I feel like we are old friends even though we have never met. Strange huh?

    I hope your New Year brings you happiness and health..
