Thursday 31st December 2019: Midday: 12 hours left. Yes, yes, there’s that thing about a new decade technically starting in 21 but still, ‘2020‘ sounds so promising, doesn’t it? A fresh piece of time, ripe with possibilities.
I know really that life passes moment to moment, hour to hour, day to night – ongoing joy and pain; problems and triumphs; love and suffering…but it’s fun to think of the start of something…(to quote Madonna)…shiny and new. Apparently we are hard-wired for optimism, so I think I’ll run with the excited feeling for now.
