At first - I was set to use an image from last year's New Year's celebration. But I find myself so completely done with 2009 - I didn't want to start the year with something having to do with the start of that.
So instead - here is an image of my new neighborhood. This is hardly a typical view. Taken on Christmas morning - the square is so quiet. This rail line is one of the nation's busiest, leading directly to and from the Port of Oakland. But quiet or busy - I'm happy to be here...
