As another year passes I sit, reflect and feast on old music and images. It has been a year of both frustrations and also triumphs... All years are like this I guess.
We have our favorite memories of the past year and also those gone by... And with the passing of time I have come to value the olden days more and more, while still appreciating the present days... Which I guess is why most of the images in this video are monochrome:
Here are the lyrics of Auld Lang Syne as written by Robert Burns in 1788:
Should old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind ?
Should old acquaintance be forgot, and old lang syne ?
CHORUS: For auld lang syne, my dear, for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet, for auld lang syne.
And surely you’ll buy your pint cup ! and surely I’ll buy mine !
And we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet, for auld lang syne.
We two have run about the slopes, and picked the daisies fine ;
But we’ve wandered many a weary foot, since auld lang syne.
We two have paddled in the stream, from morning sun till dine;
But seas between us broad have roared since auld lang syne.
And there’s a hand my trusty friend ! And give me a hand o’ thine !
And we’ll take a right good-will draught, for auld lang syne.
Dear family, friends, neighbors, and acquaintances may you know your true worth and importance. Here is my New Year's Wish for you:
May the year 2014 bring you happiness and strength to be happy no matter what life may bring to you this new year.... BLESS YOU ALL!
