A New Year

It's a New Year  (capitalization intentional), a good excuse for a blog entry.  A New Year is typically supposed to be a time for profundities.  Unfortunately, or probably fortunately, I have nothing profound to say.  I don't even have a New Year's resolution to share.  I don't make New Year's resolutions.  I have nothing against resolutions; I make them whenever they are called for, just not necessarily at the new year.   

So why am I writing this?  I'm writing it because of wishes.  New Year's wishes.  I wish a lot of things for us.  I wish us all the traditional health and happiness but I wish for more than that.  I wish us connection, with one another and the planet.   Just imagine what such a connection would bring!  And I wish us all joy. I believe wishes can come true, usually when backed up by, well, resolution.  Happy New Year to us all!
