Snow, Snow, Everywhere
Why doesn't snow look like this in real life--well at least in my life? Okay, maybe it does sometimes, but it's like youth. The picture changes so quickly that you forget it was ever that pure, that beautiful, or that innocent. Oh well. It's a new year. And it is only getting better. As I was sharing with a friend, the year ahead will have many challenges. I made lots of blunders last year, but that year is behind us now. We have an opportunity to begin again. The old has gone and the new has come.
Should auld (old) acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days of auld lang syne (old long since=good old days)?
Of course the "old long since" should not be forgotten, but let's not live there. Our old behavior does not determine our future behavior. And there is a great future ahead. No matter if your are starting out for the first time or the second--or say, even the fiftieth. Our best days are still ahead of us and we have a brand new year to begin again.
