keep it alive

As I write this the new year celebrations are going off in far away parts of the world.  The night skies light as revelers get spun from 2011 to 2012. Happy New Year. 



I don’t think life would work if the earth didn’t spin. Moving changing pushing into the future as our minds grab for pieces of the past. Oh the best pieces are the sweetest. 

New Year’s eve was never a big thing for me. The assigning of the next number in the date just seems like counting. My logical mind was puzzled when I learned my wife enjoyed seeing the odometer flip from 9’s to 0’s. Yeah it’s nice the car has lasted this long and we are moving but really what’s the big deal? 



Of course, a good party is a good party. But a good party can be had anytime of the year and a warm summer evening beats the blast of cold you often get on Dec. 31. 

I don’t join in on the resolution thing. Proclaiming of a New Year’s resolution probably is a conspiracy started by the weight loss industry which includes the fitness clubs. Besides, long ago I made a resolution never to make resolutions. 

But I do hope you fellow bloggers (I certainly plan to), keep alive your blogging next year. As long as we are spinning through space lets keep sharing our blogs. 

CHEERS

I don't recall any past visits here, so first off, welcome.  Thanks for sharing a comment.  Please check out some other posts.  If you would like a laugh check out the LLL tab on top.
Secondly, you might have seen my comment on your blog, I just finished it, but I want to thank you for blogging because for some reason your blog brought back some emotions and thoughts that I should post about in the future.  It's weird how these random things happen, like a smile from a stranger, but they do.  thanks
Happy New Year

The Hootie part is OK.  I like their name but maybe the AA crowd would not.  Happy new year.

very good point - the Mars vs. Venus thing.  From this side it appears you know us better than we know you but I have seen examples (some sad ones) where the girl was completely unaware of what she was getting into.  Both sides make mistakes and always will.  Did you ever listen to the song, My Favorite Mistake?
