Ten minutes before midnight. Just moments away from a new year.
She stands in darkness atop a hill, an icy wind chilling her face, her hair streaming behind her. Glancing over her shoulder, she watches another year blow away taking with it broken promises, unhappy memories and shattered dreams.
As angry black clouds scurry from sight a new moon appears spreading a silver carpet of hope at her feet. Her long dark shadow tumbles away into past.
Suddenly all is calm. She gazes toward the future. Another year arrives. Another chance to start her life anew.
