It's that time of the year again!
Today evening, people would party and enjoy, as if there was no tomorrow. There would be attempts to drown old sorrows of the previous year and an effort to look up to the future year. Shining (drunk?) faces would cheer as the clock strikes twelve tonight, ushering in a new year.
But what would change when that happens? Will there really be a new tomorrow?A tomorrow of justice, honour, truth and hope?
Others I know not, but HOPE surely. That's what we live on knowing fully well that tomorrow would be just one more date in our jaded lives. But as the poet said 'Hope springs eternal....'
Personally 2009 was a great year with lots of milestones reached and the necessary putdowns. I too look forward to 2010 with HOPE that the new year would be special. A year of love, laughter, fun and joy ;and the tears when they come would be few and far between.
And on this note I raise a toast to 2010 and also thank all those who made my 2009 special.
Wishing all my best wishes for a great 2010.
