  • Mood:

Happy new year!

Happy new year!

Last year around this time I wrote:

Happy new year, everyone! 2007 was a tough one, so I’m optimistic. Candice and I just opened our wall calendar for the year. Last year’s was Paris, that we brought back from our honeymoon. Before that it was Hello Kitty all the way down. But this year’s is Thich Nhat Hanh’s, and on the inside of the front cover was printed:

Embrace joy

Inspire hope

Cultivate love

Build intimacy

Celebrate life

Couldn’t put it better myself, folks. May all beings be happy in 2008 and after.

And we just opened this year's Thich Nhat Hanh calendar and it begins exactly the same. I don't know that I spent much attention on those things last year, maybe I did but if I don't know if I did something's not right! But the best I can do is to keep trying.

May all beings be happy!
