i wish you all a very happy new year.
this is the 63rd year i will enjoy the planet earth.
my priorities have changed from cocktails and confetti,
to reflection and enjoyment of more simple things.
no longer do i hunt until dawn for the highs...
the perfect times which never appear...
and lead me to despair.
for there are no perfect times
there is no perfect life
there is no perfect mate
but there is a perfect attitude
and that attitude is one of love and gratefulness
i like to think that i embrace this attitude most of the time
but sometimes i do not...for i am only human
and i am aware enough to accept my mistakes,
and wise enough to change them
so i forge ahead with persistence
loving freely, even when i am hurt
putting the past behind, but learning from it
embracing each day as if it were my last
no matter how bad i might think it is...
each of my days is a gift from the great spirit
so i love you
and am happy to have you all with me
and i hope your year gives you health and peace
for these are our greatest gifts
embrace all that is good inside of yourself
and share it with the world
and relish your life
for you are a miracle
