Hello 2013...a little early
Posted by Markiesnana
New York shared Cee Lo Green and Lady GaGa with the world, and let that ball drop again while everyone did the count down.
All week we'll be reminding ourselves to write the new year, 2012, on checks and paperwork. It will seem so foreign to most of us.
It's already the subject of conversation as people lament about the loss of 2011 and no one can understand just where it went.
This is always an adjustment period, and I, along with the rest of the world, will be adjusting.
I don't particularly like to mark the passing of time by erasing what I've written. Looking at new calendars will give us pause to remember that we're about to face new happenings, and not all of them will be unique adventures. People will pass on to their just rewards and new people will arrive on the planet, with the hopes and dreams of their families attached to them.
It's all part of my plan to sidestep the "adjustment" one year from now. If I begin thinking and writing and speaking about 2013, I can skip the newness and shock of it next year.
I no longer make resolutions, which seemed to be expected of people everywhere when I was young. So, this isn't actually a "resolution" but it's my New Year Idea.
I have to go practice writing 2013 now.
Just not on checks.
