Happy New Year!

Another year gone and a new one dawning bright and clear. Perhaps most exciting for me this year is the 15 Years of Dreams project, a blog celebrating the 15th anniversary of Second Wind Dreams, an organization that honors elders and works to decrease depression among residents of eldercare communities by making their dreams come true. As I may have mentioned before, I'll be sharing a dream a day for the year of 2012. Six days a week, these will be dreams that have come true over the 15-year history of the organization. Fridays will be devoted to dreams that have not yet been fulfilled.

I hope you'll take a few minutes to watch the video below for a taste of what Second Wind Dreams does and then visit the blog for a fun look at a 2004 dream from Joliet, IL, with a dreamer fondly known as the "Camel Lady."

Much love and best wishes for a happy and blessed new year!
