"Another Auld Lang Syne"

The new year of 2010 is one hour away from being one full day over, there are 364 days left til we again sing "another Auld Lang Syne".  Every year brings change and variety and unexpected events.  Where will we all be at this time next year?  Who will still be here next year?  What will be invented or discovered or revealed that will change our lives?  Will this be a year of excitement or a year of boredom?  Will there be financial recovery?  Will there be a functional health care system?  Will there be more good news than bad?

What celebrities will be "hot" and who will "not"?  Will we still be enduring the reports of misbehavior by those who should know better?   Will this year's crop of new babies bring Einsteins, Darwins, and Mozarts?  Or will the world be increased by Gosselins, Pitt-Jolies, and Woods?  Will we care?

There is no way to know.  No fortune teller, seer, prognosticator, or modern "prophet" has ever been able to know the future. 

That's why each new year is exciting; the possibilities are endless and it's totally out of the control of any one person!  Of course, individuals can influence events, even bring about huge changes, but no one person can control it all and no one can read the tea leaves and really know with certainty what tomorrow will bring.

Every one of us has to wait and watch each day as it comes along.  Some will succeed and some will fail.  The potential is enormous.  There are days when I can't wait to find out what comes next....and there are days it just flat out scares me to death!   The only way to find out is to tally the score on January 1, 2011. 

So with high hopes and crossed fingers, I'll close with "See you Next Year!"


  1. I'm one who just takes each day as it comes... which is why I don't do resolutions and all that. I'm a constant work in progress. So no tallies for me! But another year of doing my best, making the best choices I can at the time, and looking back just for fun and memories!

  2. Love it! January is one of my favorite months (the other being September). Everything starts out new, the house is clean and back to normal, life slows down just a bit, and anything is possible.

    Here's hoping 2010 is a banner year for all of us.
