Here Comes the Snake! Move Aside Dragon!

"Cheers to a new year and another chance
for us to get it right."
- Oprah Winfrey     

Goodbye 2012... Hello 2013!
"We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day." [- Edith Lovejoy Pierce]

            "Another fresh new year is here...
            Another year to live!
            To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
            To love and laugh and give!


            This bright new year is given me
            To live each day with zest...
            To daily grow and try to be
            My highest and my best!


            I have the opportunity
            Once more to right some wrongs,
            To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
            And sing more joyful songs!"

- William Arthur Ward     
A Note to Self for New Year's:
I do not have a new resolution. I guess I do not know anything. But I believe I know everything that I needed to know. Again, I will tend to forget the "right" , the "wrong", and the "norm" and I will always end up aiming for that which makes me happy and sane. I want to learn to listen more and talk less and hopefully be able to hang on to that good perspective. I need to be more patient with myself, and eventually be adept in expecting nothing while enjoying everything... Blah, Blah, Blah!
Happy New Year's Everyone!
