My dear hubby just posted a meme saying "In 2017: My goal is not to be better than anyone else, but better than I used to be." Sounds like a good plan to me.
I was sorry to learn Carrie Fischer passed away today. I mourn her loss. Her Princess Leia was a big inspiration to me, not the prevailing damsel in distress of the 70s but a woman with spine. Each life lost is hard, and my heart is with those who mourn for her, and all those who mourn those lost to us.
The past is golden, because, like the golden sun disappearing at the end of the day, it's set. We know how the past's story ends. It's not scary anymore.
Twenty-seventeen begins a new story, and because we don't know how it ends, it may seem frightening. It may actually end up being frightening. But I hope and wish for the best, for all of you. I look for the best, in all of us. I know by focusing on the positive, by being the best I can, by digging in and doing the work, by celebrating the small things, whatever goes down in 2017 will be better than it could have been.
Just realized...there's a new series of Sherlock plus more episodes of Grand Tour. That's enough to give 2017 a thumbs-up from me, lol.
