2009. Can you believe it? Neither can I! I’ve been trying to think of something profound to say, but instead I’ll just share some memories of 2008 with you.
And here’s to looking to the future too.
To close, I leave you with something I’ve thought about each year around midnight on December 31st regarding that song we sing and hear each year, Auld Lang Syne. Harry says it best in one of the best films ever made, When Harry Met Sally.
Harry: What does this song mean? For my whole life I don't know what this song means. I mean, 'Should old acquaintance be forgot". Does that mean we should forget old acquaintances or does it mean if we happen to forget them we should remember them, which is not possible because we already forgot them!? Sally: Well may be it just means that we should remember that we forgot them or something. Anyway it's about old friends.
I know, I know, I can easily look up the meaning on Wikipedia, but I’d rather keep wondering each year, it’s tradition after all.
