New Year's Day is such a celebration in our house. We feast, we play, we party.
All year we bustle about to fulfill our agendas, trying to get things done, we work mostly without reprise. I am always behind and the festivities of December exasperate the situation. Resentments, frustration and exhaustion seem to culminate at the climax of the year.
Then something wonderful happens, the page turns, a new year, a new decade begins. The old year is gone, it's successes linger and it's failures fall away. We forgive ourselves and each other and move forward on a new quest, the 2010 quest. We make new plans and new agendas. All the chores and anxieties can lay in wait, their importance is diminished because today I am not behind merely at the beginning.
Peace for all
