I have half an hour of 2007 remaining and while half of Colombo parties and gets roaring drunk, I sit in contemplation listening to Norah Jones and waiting for the sound of fireworks to signal the turn of a year.
I view each New Year as a chance to start anew. I get to erase the blackboard, turn over a new leaf and gird up my loins in preparation for what life is waiting to throw at me this time. I have had a good year with great family, few but good friends and a good job. I hope 2008 is as good if not better. So, let me wish you all a very Happy New Year. Be selfless and never lose faith. Happy New Year! Hurrah!
