2011 rings in with new hope.

"today we sailed on", those are words that Christopher Columbus would right in his journal nightly during his voyage in 1492. Alone in the North Atlantic engulfed by water with only the hope of a new world to keep the intrepid sailors moving forward into uncharted seas.

2007 was the beginning of the end, 2008 was the financial meltdown that devastated hopes, dreams and forever altered lives, 2009 saw the slender shoots spring ever so perilously from the barren torched ground. 2010 saw less bad which is the new normal. Those who have endured, those whose resources have weathered the Category 5 headwinds of the last four years are hoping the winds subside and fair weather returns. 

My hope is that "today you sail on"
