I love New Years Day. January 1st always holds a special place in my heart…technically, January 2nd, but New Years Day is close enough. It’s not for any particular traditions, in fact New Years Eve has always been my night to absolutely positively NOT go out. But as I see it, NYD marks the end of the Holiday Season. You know, that chaotic, crazy time of year when everyone seems to go into rush mode, while we’re all bombarded with messages that we should all be jolly and caught up in the excitement of parties, gifts and food. I’m not knocking all that fun, but even on a scaled back level, the time between Thanksgiving and today can be downright exhausting. And when all I can think about, all I want to think about, is a fictional world where everything is going to hell in every way possible, it’s hard to focus on all the festivities demanding my participation.
So no resolutions right now, just a desire for some peace and quiet, and best New Years wishes to all.
