At the occasion of New Year’s Eve, let me wish you a Happy New Year, or as the Mallorcans say, Molts d’anys (many years, i. e. a long life).
Don’t forget to see the New Year in with the 12 uvas de la suerte, at the stroke of the 12 campanas at midnight. You might want to wear some red underwear if you are superstitious. Or you might take it easy for four weeks or less and wait until the Chinese New Year brings in the Year of the Ox (January 26th), and with it the promise of prosperity in return for some hard work.
Or else, you might just decide to have a walk with your Adám (or your Éva) and enjoy sharing your life on this beautiful island, if the clouds open up for a moment and let the sun shine through which I am convinced they will.
The photo was taken near Porreres, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: June 17th, 2008. The time was 17:16:44. No, I do not know who the artist is who created this lovely piece of art. But Molts d’anys to him, or her, just the same.
