And so 2006 is almost gone. While many people see the end of the year as something sad, I tend to look forward more than back. What will the new year bring? What exciting or new thing will happen to me? What can I do differently? Should I start a new project? In general, a couple of ideas do come up and I am typically a great one for coming up with off the wall ideas about what I want to do that is new. And typically, I do it.
2006 did not bring the things I wanted in my country’s life, even if I was quite happy with my own personal life. And therein lies the paradox, things went well personally, while all the time I devoted to trying to change how this country works went to waste with Chavez’ victory on Dec. 3. The satisfaction is that I lived up to my principles and will continue to do so in the new year.
And thus my friends, Happy New Year from your blogger, hoping that in 2007 you have all your wishes fulfilled and wishing that in the new year you will be able to follow that remarkable wisdom: “Stay hungry, stay foolish“
