My 2007 in pictures (partially) ...
todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that my Mom lived to see 2008; we had another scare this week but once again she has pulled through and should get out of the hospital in a day or two
that I am up this morning without a hangover and can remember everything I did last night
for good attendance at Lambda last night for a New Year's Eve celebration
If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.
"An optimist stays up until midnight to see the New Year in.
A pessimist stays up to make sure the year leaves."
-- Bill Vaughn
"Another fresh New Year is here…
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!
This bright New Year is given me
To live each day with zest…
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!
I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!"
-- William Arthur Ward
"For last year's words belong to last year's language and next year's words await another voice." -- T.S. Eliot
"We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day."
