Happy New Year!
Happy New Year – I hope everyone has recovered from last night’s revelry…
I’m almost there! I think if I had a shower I would feel almost human.
My wish for you, and for me, in 2011, is that we can keep this wave of optimism going. That we can accomplish the things we have set out to accomplish. That the ways we want to better our selves, our families, our communities will come to fruition. I hope we can see our economy improve, that we can see the political divide between left and right move more sensibly toward the middle, that we can look at our neighbor and see a fellow human, even if they’re on unemployment. Or medicaid. Or antidepressants.
I pray that we can see people’s intentions, the thought behind the seemingly thoughtless actions. I pray that we can trust in the good in each other, and stand in each other’s shoes and carve out a little empathy for people we don’t understand.
Here’s to 2011 being the year of infinite possiblities.
