Just The Beginning

In The Beginning

 

In The Beginning Some may think of December Thirty One as the last day of the year and, of course, it is but it's also so much more than that or any day... 

 

Rather than endings, I am thinking of beginnings.  In Pasadena, that means the arrival of The Tournament of Roses Parade and The Rose Bowl Game on January 1, 2020.  This year, the theme of the parade is The Power of Hope

 

It's not just a good theme for the day but for any day.  I found this quote and I think it fits for me.  Right now.  

 

First comes thought;

then organization of that thought,

into ideas and plans into reality. 

The beginning,

as you will observe,

is in your imagination.

Hi Michael Jacobs - I have a lot of good memories of the Rose Parade.  I volunteered in high school putting on flowers on the floats. In college, I would go with my future husband and stay all night to the next morning and watch the parade.

Morning Michael.

I'm sure it is better being there up close and personal.  I bet finding a parking place is something else.

James Dray - finding a parking space on the day of the parade is just the begginning of the issues one may face near the parade route.

Michael - Happy New Year! 

Paragraph two sounds very hopeful! Pasadena seems to come alive with lots of energy and excitement! There's a lot to look forward to... 

I see the  The Tournament of Roses Parade and The Rose Bowl Game as an  opportunity for the City and all the Planners, designers, EMT'S and other emergency providers, etc., offering their services and talent to everyone who participates or tunes in to their TV's or Internet Streams to watch this wonderful gift to all!  

2020 - Let's believe in the Power of Hope!!!

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP - although the opportunity to be entertained and romanced to the beauty of the California lifestyle has changed since the inception of the Rose Parade/Rose Bowl, the allure still exists for many.  Here's to a wonderful 2020 filled with hope and dreams that become reality.

I like the quote from Napoleon Solo.  Something to think about.  But if you don't ruminate you will be desolate.  If you don't ponder you will continue to wander.  Is that the point?  Good one!
