The New Year

"It doesn't matter how gentle you are, after fifty years, you always end up wearing away the stuff you love, rubbing it out with your fingertips, cracking the foundation every time you tap your foot. The humidity in your breath brings down paint and plaster. The weight of you, after a while, makes the planet sag." -from Dream Whip #11

It's a new year, so everything's older. If you care at all, you'll take care of yrselves - and your friends & family, too. You'll even take care of strangers.

We're getting older and we might not be able to keep from looking it, but hopefully we can keep from feeling it. So take a deep breath, savor the quiet of a calm thought and don't get too caught up in all those heavy breezes. Most of all, just enjoy being a whole year older - that'll make it easier.

Happy New Year.
