As we close the books on 2012 and ready ourselves for another year to come, the simple words in this timely submission from Darren L. are well worth bearing in mind:

Learn from yesterday. Live for today. Hope for tomorrow.

With heartfelt wishes for a joyful, heart-full 2013,

My niece Janine and her partner posted this photo from Kafka’s Coffee & Tea in Vancouver, where they took a moment to snuggle and write in their journals while enjoying their vanilla lattes.

Tatiana L. spotted these incredible heart-shaped tire tracks in Calgary’s winter wonderland. Amazing!

I had just parked in the lot of a seniors’ home where I volunteer and realized that these tire tracks in front of me looked exactly like hearts. I got quite excited about this one and had to send it your way!

(Here’s Tatiana’s original photo followed by a 180 degree flip to really show off the hearts…)

Rosemary B. spotted a BBC News story about the giant pink neon heart that now adorns the European Parliament building in Brussels – a tribute to dissident playwright and Czech leader Václav Havel, who died a year ago (December 18, 2011).

Click the image to see the full story on BBC News Europe.

The reason for the heart? Well, Havel used to put a heart under his signature (see below) as a representation of his motto:

“Truth and love must win over lies and hatred!”

Hearts and bikes…my two obsessions! Thanks to Ingrid L. for this one:

I came across this photo last week in a store and knew it needed to be hanging in my family room! It now is, and it makes me smile every time I walk past. The title is “Love Bike” and I love it! It would be perfect for you as well, Mr. Cyclist.

With a heartfelt “glædelig jul,” Darren L. shares a little Scandinavian holiday spirit:

All my life, our family has celebrated Christmas with old Danish traditions. With both sets of grandparents having emigrated from the old country, there was always plenty of seasonal Danish food, drink and decorations around. One classic Danish tree ornament is the paper heart, pictured here.
