Another New Year

2007. Another new year. It just seemed like yesterday when we counted down to 2006. It just seemed like not too long ago that I blogged this entry. Anyways, Happy New Year to all of you and may your coming year be good, prosperous, healthy and happy. And remember the people you love and the people that loves you. It’s only a phone call away :)

As I did last year, I borrow again from Wislawa Szymborska:

Good and evil-
they knew little of them, but knew all:
when evil triumphs, good goes into hiding;
when good manifest, then evil lies low.
Neither can be conquered
or cast off beyond return.
Hence, if joy, then with a touch of fear;
if despair, then not without some quiet hope.
Life, however long, will always be short.
Too short for anything to be added.

From: Our Ancestor’s Short Lives
