‘Auld Lang Syne’ …. “Days Gone By …. Goodbye 2016 …. Uncertainty Ahead …. “!!


goodbye

~~December 31, 2016~~ 

THE YEAR 2016

During the early months of 2016, the world was shinning.

The promise of progress and positive change was in the air.

I married the love of my life in early January.

There is no doubt in my mind that 2016 has been a difficult year, full of change, challenges, losses, promises, conflicts and uncertainty.

Many loved ones have been lost that we are aware of and plenty must have been lost that we do not know about.

Personally, it’s been difficult for me because I have seen the ‘melting away‘ of institutions that have been very sacred to me.

I do not have today the hope, the joy and the looking forward to the next year (2017) that frequently accompanies this festivity.

I’m very concerned about 2017.

It’s lost the shine and luster that usually comes with new beginnings.

I haven’t been able to shake off a feeling of dread since November 8.

Call me a ‘snowflake‘, call me a ‘sore loser‘, call me a ‘pessimist‘.

Call me all you want; I can take it.

‘Stick and stones may brake my bones but words will never hurt me.”

I know how I feel and I know why.

I’m carefully observant and vigilant now.

I so hope to be proven wrong!

Auld Lang Syne With Lyrics

~~Published on Dec 29, 2016~~

Gone but not Forgotten

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
and days of auld lang syne?

~~Published on Dec 29, 2016~~

At the end of this crazy year I wanted to do something special to celebrate the lives of those we’ve lost.
I wasn’t able to include everyone, of course, but I tried my best to include those who meant something to me.

SPECIAL DAY FOR ME YESTERDAY

A new day begins today…… July 2!

July 1st is done.

A new cycle begins.

I was born on July 1, 1950.

(There, I’ve revealed my age.)

My place of birth is Santurce, Puerto Rico, a suburb very close to San Juan, the capital city.

At my age, celebrations of the kind kinda lose their importance because you’ve had so many.

Yet, deep in the heart, it’s deeply comforting that family, friends, acquantainces and people who come into your life through the wonder of this wonderful web we weave, remember the day you were born.

Granted, Facebook has a great way of reminding them.
