Christmas is gone and January is upon us, so I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year!
As we do, over and over, when we encounter anyone on January 1st and for a few days afterwards - family, friends, acquaintances, colleagues, and even people you pass in the street (depending upon where you live!).
But does it mean anything?
Do we even think about what it means?
And then of course we sit down to write our New Year’s Resolutions - some of us, anyway - or at the very least we pay some heed to the arrival of a new year and wonder what it will bring, maybe taking a few moment to ponder over the highlights or otherwise of the one just lived through.
I would like to take the time this month and use this space to offer you my thoughts on these matters - and would be pleased if you likewise had the time to send me your own, whether or not they coincide with mine.
