Things to Leave Behind

As this last day of the old year dawns it is wiser to look to the future than to the past. If we really intend to make the new year better than the old one there are some things that had best left behind. Now is a good time to look up and forward.  At age 80 Edwin Markham wrote:

I am done with the years that were: I a quits:
I am done with the dead and old.
They are mines worked out: I delved in their pits:
I have saved their grain of gold.

Now I turn to the future for wine and bread:
I have bidden the past adieu.
I laugh and lift hands to the years ahead:
Come on! I am ready for you!

See ya next year… HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
