So here I am and here we are– 2012! I remember as a kid in high school thinking that the year 2000 seemed forever away (Prince’s “1999” was the waaay distant future). Would I have a wife? Kids? Where would I be living? So again… 2012. Incredible. As 2000 recedes ever more rapidly into the past, I figure it’s high time to get on with appreciating all the good and staying as far away from all that is bad– there’s just not enough time for it. So here’s to the New Year and focusing on happiness– with family, friends and work.
