I woke up from falling asleep in front of a so-so movie on my computer. It was about ten minutes to midnight. I check my email and find that a very old friend had taken the time to wish me a Happy New Year. I am touched. Very.

I reassure my cats, who are spooked about the fireworks that erupt at midnight. And get up to eat a small mandarin orange from my former state of residence. I offer a slice to Loki and another to my guardian demon.

Perhaps this year will make more sense.

My New Year’s resolution? I vow to not kvetch so much about personal stuff in this blog.

I wish you all peace, humor, better health, and much joy in our next shared orbit around the Sun.
