NYE Reflections

Specific New Year’s Eves stand out in my mind:
Sleeping ‘cause I couldn’t stay awake
Playing pool through the night
Hanging out with friends
Being romanced then proposed to
Eating a grape at each strike of the countdown
Vomiting from flu and morning sickness
Dancing and socializing till the wee hours
Chatting on the phone with a long distance friend
Sitting home alone
And though every year is different, some things remain constant:
It is a time for reflection and new direction
A time to mourn wasted time and vow to recompense
A time to say good bye and hello
A time to say “It’s time.”
Happy New Year
