We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. May be this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential.
A happy New Year
A happy New Year! Grant that I
May bring no tear to any eye
When this New Year in time shall end
Let it be said I've played the friend,
Have lived and loved and labored here,
And made of it a happy year.

Yesterday, everybody smoked his last cigar, took his last drink and swore his last oath. Today, we are a pious and exemplary community. Thirty days from now, we shall have cast our reformation to the winds and gone to cutting our ancient shortcomings considerably shorter than ever.
