New Year's Eve Sky Show

Another year coming to a close ..
Much reflecting on the year gone by.

Thought the 'star watchers' might find this information interesting:

NEW YEAR'S EVE: What a way to end the year. On Dec. 31st, Venus and the slender crescent Moon will gather together high in the southwestern sky for a beautiful conjunction visible for hours after sunset. The two brightest objects in the night sky can be seen through city lights and even fireworks--so everyone can enjoy the show. Meanwhile, closer to the horizon, Mercury and Jupiter are converging for their own Dec. 31st conjunction. This one is not so easy to see, but rewarding for those who make the effort to find the two planets shining through the rosy glow of sunset.

Visit for sky maps and photos of the converging planets.

New Year's Ball in Times Square

New Year's Ball in Times Square to stay bright, All Year Round.
We often celebrate big events with lots of bright lights, and the dropping of a giant illuminated ball in Times Square marking the New Year for revelers in Manhattan .. visit to read more of the New Year's Ball

New Year's Quote:

'Be always at war with your vices,
... at peace with your neighbors,
and let each new year find you -
.... a better man.'
~~ Benjamin Franklin

Wishing you a safe and healthy 2009.!

A picture journey from SunRose 2008

Gina & Melady .. a Mom's Love .. 2008

Jennifer Jefferies & friends Dec 2008

The New Yankee Stadium 2008

David Oller presenting his Incense Kodo 2008

Nite views in the garden at 1120 Club 2008

The above are just a few of the many pictures thru out the year .. (some of which I would love to put up .. but can't locate on the puter .. oh joy) ..
Having Jennifer here .. is like having a sister visit .. she is amazing .. we had a great time and dinner with the Gang .. Jean Smith, Jen, Gina Christie & Johanna.

David Oller's kodo was amazing .. as always ..

The year is almost at an end .. though there has been some 'historical happenings' this year,
there is still so much suffering on this planet ..
We need to re establish a sense of community ... people coming together .. helping each other.
what a concept I know .. one that this society is so far removed from.

However, I am blessed .. due to the internet .. to have met such wonderful people .. loving, sharing, caring .. empowering.

My wish for all those in my life .. joy, love, good health, and peace.
With Mother Nature dumping all this snow / rain / sleet ..
for those that have to travel,
safe journey.

Thank you for reading my Sunday ramblings..

Happy Winter Solstice,

'In ancient times, both Druids and Romans hung sprigs
of mistletoe in their homes and places of celebration
to bring good fortune, peace and love.'

Many thanks ! 10 Years Later.. !!!

This is a time of thanks .. to all those that have supported me and my vision of SunRose. Here I am .. 10 yrs later ... it is just amazing to me. Many thanks to all my customers, family and friends that have been with me thru these years .. and continue to believe in SunRose and the beautiful aromatic materials we offer.
Saying that ... thru the years I have developed friendships with my suppliers/ distillers from around the world. I am ever aware of the strife in many of the countries essential oils are obtained from.

Most recently, the atrocities going on in Mumbai .. and the terrorists attacks there last week. This was equivalent to the 9/11 terrorists attack here in NYC .. I had the honor of meeting Ramakant, our grower/distiller from India, a few years back. My dear friend Sandrine VanSlee had brought him up to the Bronx to meet me .. he is such a kind, gentle man .. his love and knowledge of essential oils is just amazing.

Then to read about the attacks there .. makes me so very thankful that I live here in the USA. We sometimes forget that we still do have so many freedoms, and as a female ..
the opportunities that I have .. however, would NOT have in many other countries.

The Internet has made it is easy for us to get to know the people of far off countries, learning about their customs and way of life. This has been one of the major blessings that I am so thankful for.

When I read this article .. I thought it so apropos ... sometimes we forget .. we are a community, those of this modern generation have become so insular .. emails, texting, etc .. to read more:

Keep Friendship Alive - People need people. And often they don’t realize how great their need is until some moment of great joy or deep sorrow. At some point in your life you’ve probably experienced this yourself—wanting to share some great news with a friend or, perhaps during hard times, needing care and support from others ...

Some quotes for the winter season ~

hung sprigs of mistletoe in their homes
and places of celebration to bring
good fortune, peace and love.

but eternal spring is in my heart.
--- Victor Hugo

Blow, blow, thou winter wind
Thou art not so unkind,
As man's ingratitude.
--- William (Bill) Shakespeare

from another -
Winter night.'
