Well, it’s that time of year again.
No. The other one. (This we offer in humility and fear. For the blessed peace of your eternal slumber. As it ever was).
Sorry. I took a few days off.
The world raises its glasses in celebration, sending off the year in a manner befitting of whatever cultures or peoples it embraces.
We all reflect and remember in our own way.
We all have plans, dreams, hopes and schemes to unfurl in the coming days and weeks.
From the day we arrive on the planet, and blinking step into the sun. There is more to see than can ever be seen. More to do than – no, hold on… Sorry, that’s the ‘Lion King’. But the point still stands.
We will be challenged. Its not easy, the future.
It tasks us. It tasks us, but we shall have it.
And tomorrow morning, as we slink from ‘neath the lamp shade of indulgence, the first bright new day of a brand new year will shine its unforgiving flashlight upon our expectations.
I know you’re out there. I can feel you now. I know that you’re afraid. You’re afraid of us. You’re afraid of change. I don’t know the future. I didn’t come here to tell you how this..… Facepalm. – that’s “The Matrix”. Sorry.
Look at the egg on me.
When you go forward into 2014, keep this in mind: I have a proposition which was true in old times, just as it’s true today. Be excellent to each other. And… PARTY ON, DUDES!
Oops. I did it again.
Happy New Year. And shit.
