Where were you last night when 2012 turned into 2013? Is that where you’d wanted to be?

I was exactly where I wanted to be, in my bed sound asleep. I know I sound like an old fogy, but then again I am getting older. To be honest, I can’t remember the last time I was up at midnight on New Year’s Eve. My partying days are long gone. My health and medications keep me from enjoying food and drink. I just tell everybody ‘Happy New Year’s’ when I wake up on New Year’s Day.

My mind is full of past New Year’s Eves and there are a lot of stories to be told. 2013 finds me with a relaxed attitude, a certainty of where I’m going, and full of ideas. I’m looking forward to the journey.
