Happy New Year

Fast away the old year passes,
Fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!
Hail the new, ye lads and lasses!
Fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!
Laughing, quaffing all together,
Fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!
Heedless of the wind and weather,
Fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!

(From Deck the Halls-English words by Thomas Oliphant)

When I was a child, I could never understand why my parents said that time passed quicker as they aged. My mind couldn’t comprehend anything but 60 seconds was a minute-60 minutes were in an hour-24 hours were in a day-365 days were in a year. Time was measured as equal. An absolute.

Fast forward and *Gasp* I’ve become my mother. My own children question my vision of time. Last week it seemed like Thanksgiving. Now we’re welcoming in another year. Last year it seemed like both my children were diapers. Now my son has his driver’s license, a job, and looking at colleges and my daughter has traded in her Barbies for boys.

“Fast away the old year passes” Time marches forward and the present becomes the past in the blink of an eye.

“Hail the new, ye lads and lasses” The new year. Fresh, exciting, full of hope and promise. Times of new beginnings, hopes, resolutions. And for me, new books.

I’m approaching this year “laughing, quaffing all together” with my words, my author friends, my ideas bursting to come out.

“Heedless of the wind and weather” or in my case, the self-doubt, the chance of rejection, the time suck of a day job.

“Fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!? Did you hear the sound of my fingers tapping the keyboard?

Welcome 2017! A toast to you and yours. May 2017 bring you much happiness and joy!
