No Apologies!

The view from a Subway Platform earlier this week

I make No Apologies!
I think that Life is Beautiful
An Awfully Wonderful Adventure
A Gymboree for the Soul
An Opportunity to learn Forgiveness and Strength and Surrender
To be In Relationship with One Another — All of Us
To develop Attributes and cultivate Spiritual Values
And I don’t think there is Any Such thing as a Bad Year or even a Bad Day!
I make No Apologies for that!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I know. I know.
Most people were done with that greeting in the first week of January.

And New Year’s Day always seemed to me a Terrible Day to Launch Something.
Firstly, it’s a Federal Holiday in the USA, and a Holiday that most people Celebrate throughout the World
(Twenty-Four times, really — over a course of 24 hours, throughout all the different Time Zones!)
It’s a Time for Festivity.
It is Still Only the Seventh Day of Christmas and many of us are concentrating on that.
So to begin with Resolutions and Plans and Projections at that time seems premature.
Today is a Much Better Day for that! (more…)
