’19

What a doozie

So many highs

So many lows

So many funerals

Only one wedding

However, there were great events, parties, premiers, expansions

Podcasts and productions

Births, christenings, confirmations

Fabulous trips

Writing and more writing

Law practice thriving in spite of the miserable loss of my dear law partner Gray Taylor

Our work team coming together in a way we could have never imagined

Since May, there’s been at least one funeral at month

My maternal grandmother always said, “Dying’s part of living”

Damnit

Really, 2019?

That’s all you got?

In spite of our national discord, problems at every turn, divisions at home and abroad, a non-stop and impossible land war in Asia, as a whole, we humans are doing better than ever in spite of daily existential crises

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be

As I prepare to bid 2019 adieu, I am more and more grateful to God for my friends and family

I treasure those whom I love and those who love me

As I age, I have decided that I have no time for stupid and no time for people who have no time for me

To paraphrase one of my favorite songs, people whom I’d much rather kick in the eye

Another reason why I may not be sad to see 2019 go

I lost people who loved me and whom I loved

We didn’t get enough time together

None of us ever do

I’m limiting the time I spend with those whom I don’t like, don’t respect, don’t need in 2020

That’s my Resolution

I’ll be perfectly pleasant and polite to everyone

I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings

That’s just manners

But, inside my head, I will be saying to them what I want to say to 2019

One word begins with an F

The other beings with an O

You can take your auld lang syne

See y’all in 2020

If you’re reading this, then you’re not in the eff off crowd

In fact, you’re some of the folks I wish to see more of in 2020

Love to each of you

Happy New Year

father time
Father Time…that old SOB
