Either as a student or as a teacher, I have spent practically my
whole life centering the measurement of a year on an academic calendar.
January 1st? Not such a big deal. The start of the school year, whether
it falls in early August or after Labor Day, has always been for me the
point of reflection and resolution that is traditionally reserved for
New Year's Day.
So to everyone, I wish you a happy new year. I
truly hope and pray that this year is the one in which your life's
wrongs are righted and your downs swing upward. May brighter days be
ahead for all of us.
Thank you all for the thoughts, kind
words, and views that you've shared in the comments the past few days.
If I haven't made it 'round your way lately, it's not because I don't
care. It's just that I'm up to my eyeballs in the new year.
