4x4 Friday--New Year

I know, I know, it isn't Friday yet, but the challenge theme was posted early so I took a try at it. New Year's is a strange time of the year, so many different feelings--doors closing, doors opening--endings and new beginnings...thoughts of mortality and the urge to boldly go...

Anyway, I found this lovely quote from TS Eliot, and it brought music to my mind--because it's a universal language and speaks with many voices. And then to children , the new generation, making their own language, and seeing the world with their own eyes as they grow.

The musician image came from Magic Moonlight studios, the bird I found on Google, the clock face is from Dover. The several images that helped make the background are free to use from Brusheezy's collection, as are many of the photoshop brushes I used.

Happy New Year to Everyone!
