New Year Again

Happy New Year! Another brand new year is beginning and although today is just like any other day, psychologically, it is a new beginning. Human are psychological beings anyways, so let’s pray that the new year will bring us lots of good luck, lots of great Go games, lots of great movies, lots of energy and preseverance, lots of understandings and love, and let it bring us, ummm…., world peace.

To borrow a verse from Wislawa Szymborska’s “Love at First Sight”:

“Every beginning
is only a sequel, after all,
and the book of events
is always open halfway through.”

Calvin: “Wow, it really snowed last night! Isn’t it wonderful?”
Hobbes: “Everything familiar has disappeared! The world looks brand new!”
Calvin: “A new year…A fresh, clean start!”
Hobbes: “It’s like having a big, white sheet of paper to draw on!”
Calvin: “A day full of possibilities!”
Calvin: “It’s a magical world, Hobbes, Ol’ buddy…”
As they gleefully speed the hill…
Calvin says: “Let’s go exploring.”
