Happy New Year!!!
With the entrance of 2015 I wrote a list with words and ideas that hang in the air from New Year's Eve into January. Every few months I make a new list to aid my calligraphy practice. It's helpful to have a go-to set of words for warming up the pen. I hope my lists can help you as well.
I always have a word that starts with each letter of the alphabet for practicing capitals. It gets a little tricky with some letters so you'll notice this list uses the year MMXV to solve for the "x word". And I couldn't help but arrange the words to tell a slightly poetic story.
Did you know you can see into the future? While researching words I went to wikipedia and learned that 2015 is the international year of light. It's more of a technical/science designation but I like the overall sentiment of the phrasing.
For search purposes here it is as text: Zero hour, Midnight, Ol' Lange Syne, uncork Proseco, celebrate new year kisses MMXV. Viva January. Bright early dawn. Acknowledge imminent future. Ritual testaments; wishes, quixotic goals.
And in almost alphabetical order:
Ol' Lang Syne
