I received this today from a friend, and thought it so apt. Not necessarily uplifting & positive - but more true to reality.
We can (& should) hope for better, but I believe accepting what comes our way and dealing with the here and now will
keep us grounded. I'm thankful for a lot of old friends here on Our Salon & for lorianne for giving us this home.
Happy New Year! & Good Luck (we'll need it)
What can be said in New Year rhymes,
That's not been said a thousand times?
The new years come, the old years go,
We know we dream, we dream we know.
We rise up laughing with the light,
We lie down weeping with the night.
We hug the world until it stings,
We curse it then and sigh for wings.
We live, we love, we woo, we wed,
We wreathe our prides, we sheet our dead.
We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear,
And that's the burden of a year.
