Happy 2017!

Happy new year – wishing you love, happiness, and lots of new music, poems, and other arts in 2017!

Here is a photograph taken by my sweetheart on a rooftop in Amsterdam just after midnight, where we were celebrating with friends. Yes, it was this foggy, and yes, the fireworks were this red (at times).
