The Passing of the Year

I know I'm a week or so late, but Happy New Year! My immediate New Years resolution is step up my blog game - starting with catching up on the books I've read over the past few weeks, then making sure to write about each book I read right after I finish it. Thanks for hanging in there!

Here's to hoping 2010 brings wonderful things.

My pipe is out, my glass is dry;

My fire is almost ashes too;

But once again, before you go,

And I prepare to meet the New:

Old Year! a parting word that's true,

For we've been comrades, you and I --

I thank God for each day of you;

There! bless you now! Old Year, good-bye!

- from Robert W. Service's "The Passing of the Year"
