...for a New Year!
Happy New Year to you all!
Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.
~Alfred, Lord Tennyson, 1850
May you ring in the truth this Year...
Every man should be born again on the first day of January.
Start with a fresh page.
Take up one hole more in the buckle if necessary,
or let down one, according to circumstances;
but on the first of January let every man gird himself once more,
with his face to the front,
and take no interest in the things that were and are past.
~Henry Ward Beecher
And may you set your face like flint
to the goodness He has in store,
laying behind all of 2011...
