Happy New Year to all

Out With The Old, In With The New

The more things change, the more they remain the same.

There is an illusion of change, rebirth, a new start. Is it really true? After the bells ring and balloons drop, will we not simply have to pick up the same old pieces and go on?

Well, maybe. But it’s nice to think about starting over.

Who knows, the big plans might just work out this time.

So, Happy New Year to all.

I will say an old prayer I heard long ago: “Let what’s best for me happen to me.”

That might be a bit better than saying “May all your wishes come true.” In retrospect, looking back over the years, I’m very thankful that a number of my wishes did not come true. Talk about disaster!

So, let what’s best for you happen to you.

That’s what I wish for 2013, for myself and for all of you.
