New Beginnings 2010

The end of last year saw lots of big changes in my and my family's personal life. For me a new life, a new house and a new packet of challenges....with many highs and lows still to encounter. I am, however, very positive about the future and am excited to unwrap the new gifts that await us all for 2010.

Inside this beautiful fabric wrapping cloth is a bundle of Japanese incense sticks called, in english "Incense of the Silk Road". It is a rich combination of precious woods and gums that once travelled the great highways of the ancient world, blended with delicate Japanese's one of my favourites.

May this year be as rich and delicate for us all.
