The Decade Ends
Sounds so important, doesn't it? Like it is a milestone or something. Remember how we all, 10 years ago today, wondered if our computers would work and if our planes would fly and if we would wake and the world would be changed. The world was changed, we all tore off a day on the calendar and moved along to the next one. Not so much about the passage of time as about what we did with the time that passed.
I hope that all of you can look back on the last year (I won't ask you to look back on all 10 because that would take all day and I'm sure you have other things to do) and feel the pride that comes with accomplishment. Does not have to be earth shattering, just movement from a to b. Things have changed since this time last year. Even if they are not the changes we would have asked for, we made it through them and can truly celebrate our past year and the year to come which is full of possibilities.
Be safe tonight. Enjoy today. Make resolutions if you want to. Encourage those who do. May you all have the best of everything in the new year and be able to look back 365 days from now and feel the pride of accomplishment and the warmth of love that 2010 can be.
I leave you with vintage art for the day.
