On Day 5 of a nasty cold, the kind that seems like it went away on Day 3 and then on Day 4 kicks yer butt in a comeback that any self respecting virus would have to admire.
So I am going to wish Everyone a very happy and safe holiday season. I will be home alone for Christmas this year for the first time in my life (my only close relative, Mom, is in the hospital, she’s fine by the way) and I am sort of looking forward to the experience seeing as there is not much in the way of alternatives, not really in the mood for partying (did I actually say that?) and hoping to turn it into a positive such as putting a major dent into Infinite Jest which I am finally getting around to reading though I should also say that waiting 20 years to read great epic novels is hardly a bad strategy lol.(Still, one of the saddest things ever was the character Zelig in the Woody Allen movie who never got around to reading Moby Dick – I have a copy thanks to my former used bookstore lady/friend and IT is looking forward to my old age🙂 )
I also wish Everyone a good 2015!
For those who have expressed concern that maybe all my politicking is, well, depressing, keep in mind that I have been into this since my early teens, it’s neither depressing or uplifting, though there are plenty of those kinds of moments, it’s just part of who I am. And I am an optimist despite the fact that my opinion of humanity is constantly being challenged and I do believe that in the end, when the chips are truly down, people are capable of rising up and doing remarkable things, awesome things, surprising ourselves once again.
I am going to call 2015 The Year Of The Light At The End Of The Tunnel!
Have a Good One!!
