I wanted to write something clever to ring in the New Year. I thought maybe something funny or satirical. How about deep and profound? Or maybe inspirational? Nothing, nada, zilch. I have nothing. I’ve made no resolutions, I have no high hopes.
Remember the show years ago called THAT WAS THE WEEK THAT WAS? Within about half an hour, 2019 will be the year that was. There will be no fond memories, no awesome events, and no ‘light my fire’ inspirations. Folks, 2019 was a certifiable dud, a wasteland of time, a sewer of unintelligible gibberish. And we had a front row seat. With thanks let us bury 2019 in the deep, dark hole in which it belongs.
2020 will be spectacular when and if we make it so. Give back the insanity to those people who want an insane life. Return the uncivility, the crass behavior, the smutty behavior, the lies and deceit to those who thrive upon it. Return to sender C.O.D. You and I don’t need it in our lives. We have better things to do. AMEN ?
Let’s love our friends as if they are irreplaceable because they truly are. Let’s treat our family as if we actually like them. Let’s see the rest of struggling humanity as brothers and sisters because in compassionate solidarity we are one.
