Well, it is 7:45 p.m. where I live. Another year is drawing to a close. It is about time to start the annual Scrabble game with my wife. Maybe I can win this year.
The New Year is a powerful point in the year, because it represents so much. It symbolizes a new beginning, new possibilities, the end of things gone by.
“Should old acquaintance be forgot?” means should we forget old times? The answer to that is no, especially to friends and loved ones. But it is a reminder because of the powerful symbol of a new page, a blank slate, endless possibilities. Each new year represents the changes we can make, the new person we can become.
So, happy new year to all. Wishing you the best in 2012!
