we have a bit of a tradition at new year of a meal on year's eve where we reflect on the year gone by and what things have been bitter and sweet. this is accompanied by a sweet and sour meal or someting bitter and sweet to taste. we write them down on sheets of paper and talk about them before reflecting on hopes and dreams for the year ahead (we also seem to always accompany this with james lavelle's remix of bittersweet symphony by the verve).
on new year's eve we only managed the first part so last night did our hopes and dreams in a meal. writing the words hope and dream in candles was a spontaneous last minute idea that made it that bit more special with hopes and dreams scribbled on post its and scattered round the meal table...
i had asssumed that the bittersweet ritual was a worship trick but it doesn't seem to be so this is no 90 in series 2.
somehow the pics look better in black and white - a few more at flickr of course
