Well, we made it. This far at least. A few hours into the new year, a couple of cups of coffee and I'm ready to see what happens. We celebrated the coming year last night with a glass of champagne, but fell asleep long before midnight when we crossed over the time bridge.

I was up early this morning - too early. But awaited the sunrise - the usual stuff. I had a camera in hand and took a few pix to see if the otherwise normal looking twilight would look any better thru the glass. It didn't. It was a normal morning in that regard.

Naturally, I got a lot of emails, text messages, and phone calls as the evening progressed. I'll get to some of them today. But, today is mostly just a day to celebrate being normal and average (as much as is reasonable). I remember sitting with my friend, teacher and guru, Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati - it was years ago, and the times seemed to be in some sort of upheaval. A lot was going on. And she said "I just would love to have an ordinary average day."

So, here we are. There's a lot going on. I try to keep up with it. But, having said that, I'm hoping and praying for a normal ordinary average year ahead. One where we can relax with friends and family, and enjoy ourselves and the world around us. Many have sacrificed a lot over the years and centuries, so that someone somewhere could just enjoy the days and years we have together. With that in mind - Happy New Year to all.
