The Devil Dog hopes everyone takes the time to reflect on New Years Day how good you actually have it in life, in spite of what ails you; think positively about the possibilities for 2009 and view the challenges in your life as opportunities for the redemption of the human spirit. Its a big beautiful world out there, right at home and all around the globe, so indulge....take a trip with someone you care about and find the memory of a corner of the sky you can call your own.
Last year my wife Alison and I went to St. Paul de Vence, a medieval village in the hills of the south of France, staying at the legendary Colombe d'Or, the most exqusitely personal hotel I have ever stayed in. Our first morning there we woke up early and walked the ramparts of the tiny village as the sun was rising. In the middle of town, at the highest point, is the church, a beautiful conclave from the 14th century. We sat on the steps and had a local early rising passerby take the picture. It was one of the most beautiful mornings of the Devil Dogs life, and the start of an amazing 8 days in St Paul, and Vence, and Tourette sur Loup, and Cap d'Antibe, and Cagne sur Mer.
Happy New Year !!!
