Auld Lang Syne

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind ?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
and auld lang syne ?

For auld lang syne, my jo,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
- Robert Burns


So here we are, at the end of another year.  For better or for worse, it was what it was, and it's up to all of us to move forward, since the world will anyway ...

Remember that for every joy you experience, someone else experiences sorrow; for every day that is the best one of your life, it is the worst day for another.  The universe shifts every day, and most of the time, none of us are able to control it.  But if we are going to live our lives with any amount of satisfaction or happiness, we have to take responsibility for our own feelings and dreams.

Goodbye, 2009!
Thank you for the happy times and good riddance to any of the sadness.  Tomorrow is a fresh new day in a fresh new year.
  May all of you be able to welcome it with fresh new hopes.

I come to you so often to have things put into perspective. Thank you.

I raise my glass of Dr Pepper to you and The Tim and The Fur Patrol . . .

We drank a toast to innocence, we drank a toast to now.
We drank to reach beyond the emptiness but neither one knew ho-o-o-ow.


Happy New Year! I look forward to more giggly lunches at DiBruno's with you, as well as some rendezvous with Garden Kitty.
