So This Is the New Year . . .

The year ended in confusion.
Don't ask me; I don't know what happened.
But I am a man with a mission. . . .
The sun always sets with room for regrets. . . .
Give to receive--find all that we need.
"I Walk Away" by Crowded House


So . . . happy new year!
Let's hope it's a good one, without any fear.
"Happy Christmas (War Is Over)" by John Lennon

Here's a decidedly less optimistic selection:

"So this is the new year
And I don't feel any different
The clanking of crystal
Explosions off in the distance

. . .

"so this is the new year
and I have no resolutions
for self-assigned penance
for problems with easy solutions"

"The New Year" by Death Cab for Cutie

"And so we're told this is the golden age
And gold is the reason for the wars we wage
Though I want to be with you
Be with you night and day
Nothing changes
On New Year's Day"

"New Year's Day" by U2
