numerology, astrology, alchemy, daguerreotypography

And that makes another lap around the sun.

With a new calendar now in place, the prognosticators are looking at the numbers, the stars, and everything else, for further insight on the fledgling promise of 2008. May everything be as it should, could, ... and then some.

With one last look at a few 2007 outtakes, felix's daily starfish and waffles wishes you a Happy New Year.

In August, the corporate headquarters of felix's daily starfish and waffles moved here, to Lund, Sweden. Well, not here, exactly, but ...

... here. The editor wakes up to this view every morning, though admittedly not all are as brilliant as this particular October sunrise.

It's been at least a decade since I've been inside the Mendel Conservatory in Saskatoon, Canada. Although still an oasis of colour in the midst of the bleak, prairie winter landscape, it - like so many other places in the world - seems smaller than I remember.

A snap of the Bergen Kunstmuseum's (Art Museum) crowning tower room. Although I would've liked to have traveled a bit more, I did manage to get to Bergen, Norway, in October.

My little niece Amy turned one in 2007. (Saskatoon, Canada).

2007 featured a summer of weddings. Here's a shot of the gorgeous girls from Tina's wedding party. (Edmonton, Canada).

Tina let me practice my developing photography skills at her henna party in July. (Edmonton, Canada). My first stock photographs were accepted by Alamy in October and my Red Bubble online store opened for business in November.

From left to right: Tanay, me, Jane. (Ottawa, Canada). Ok, so this one was taken in 2006. But if there was ever a year of reflecting on past people and places while taking on and looking forward to new challenges, 2007 was it. Will 2007's questions resolve themselves in 2008? We'll see. In the meantime, thank you for being here with us at felix's daily starfish and waffles for another year.


  1. NOT let too many Swedes now that you're a Canadian living in their country -- what with the fact we stole the gold medal out from under them in the World Junior Hockey Championships. they even care about the tourney there like we do here?

  2. In these southern parts of Sweden, hockey isn't really that big a sport (I think we've got like a Division 3 team here in Lund), so the tourney news was really just met with a shrug. Further north though, like say in Stockholm, they definitely would've cared a lot more.

  3. Really fantastic your post. I look forward to future posts.

    In common usage, horoscope often refers to an astrologer's interpretation, usually through a system of Sun sign astrology or based on calendar significance of an event, as in Chinese astrology.

    Thanks for sharing,
