As the year 2013 draws to a close, we wish for every reader of theburninghand.com a New Year of ecstasy! You are worth the very best! You are worth Love!
May 2014 be a Happy Beginning to the "Boo!" of a life of mystic-activism!
May 2014 be a Happy Beginning to a serious effort to end world hunger and poverty!
May 2014 be a Happy Beginning to Peace between all the Peoples of the Middle East!
We have many more hopes and prayers for 2014, but mostly we hope for magic and wonder, romance and delight, to fill every heart!
Blessings to All!
