Quote for the Week
This old year of 2008 is ending. The great Eudora Welty said, in The Optimist's Daughter (1968): Never think you've seen the last of anything.
I think it's safe to say we'll see the last of 2008 in just a few days. And I'm glad. The year has become tedious and wearisome. I'm ready for a fresh, brand- spanking-new, shiny year with all its hope and potential.
We'll certainly see the end of the old year, but, the repercussions from 2008 are rushing toward us like a tsunami, hidden deep beneath the ocean. Actually, I guess Ms. Welty was right after all.
Embrace the New Year with all its promise.
