  1. Happy New Year Alison! One of my hope for this year is to meet you..that's not so difficult, isn't it?

  2. I love your list, Alison! And the photo is SUPERB...very "apropos".

    I read the Chopra book on Buddha in 2008 and really enjoyed it...but Herman Hesse's Siddhartha is better...add that classic to your list if you haven't read it. Even better, read those two books back-to-back, even if you've read the Hesse book before.

    Much love, friendship and continued success in your new pursuits in 2009!

  3. Happy New Year to you! You have done so many things in 2008 (as compare to me), especially the books you read & time you have with yourself. You have a great life :)

    I read your blog from time to time, but never leave you any comments. Will try to do this more this year as a start ;)

    Wishes you a better year in 2009! :D

  4. Happy New Year, Alison! May it have lots of fun, adventure and surprises.

  5. Hapi 2009 Ali!

    Wish u nothing but the best...n will see you soon, yes? ;)

  6. hliza: oh yes! lets. yipee! that's not impossible. looking forward to meet you!

    amber: thank for very much for the recommendation, i'll add that to my list.

    janet: hello? you carried 9 months of joy and gave birth to baby roy and being a busy mother is so much! hahaha! i am sure you'll have such joyful moments with roy and your expanded family. :)
