God bless us all...

Another year passed by. Quietly. But for the de reguier “What are you doing tonight?” and “What’s your New Year resolution?”

Answer to the first. I didn’t ‘do’ anything out of the ordinary last night. Worked through the day. Went home and spent time with folks. Drank a little wine and cooked a decent meal. Missed a few people in my life. Slept before the midnight hour with my mobile on silent. And I woke up minus any guilt of not ‘doing’ something special.

Answer to the second. God bless them who make resolutions and stick by them and even those who don’t. As for me, I have never made any resolutions, which is why I never have to stick to one :) Freedom eh?

There was a time when ‘New Year's Eve’ seemed like a special day with whirlwind of activities as we raced each other and the world to make the most of it. Parties. Friends old and new. Dancing through the night. Pounding hangover(groan!). You get the picture. It was a night that everyone talked about through the first weeks of the New Year. But somewhere over the years it stopped being the center of our existence.

Like this year. Close to the year-end, I spent a wonderful day with a friend. We talked. We bantered. We shared a take-away meal. We relaxed. We even planned an adult radio show together called ‘Lewd Rampart’ (don’t ask!). A complete useless day you might say. But easily one of my best days in many many years. Reconfirming my belief that any day can be special as long as you give it a shot.

So that was that. One more year down and one more year to live, love and celebrate.

Hey nice to know you had a fun evening, how about more information about the lewd Rampart ;)
There was a time when I used to be awake all night celebrating with cousins and friends, lately it has been just me, and this year too was amazing fun sleeping thorough the new year :).

Have a great, great year, as peaceful and as full of accomplishments as your new years eve night. They say that the way you spend your new years eve is how the rest of the year's going to go, I hope that's how yours goes :)
