New Year

New Year's is an illusionary beginning. Every morning is an illusionary beginning and New Year's is the king of them all. It is also an illusionary ending. There are beginnings because there are endings... and how can there be happy endings if the greatest ending is commonly known as Death? Beginnings always bring with them hopes, wishfulness, and fortune telling. They are survival musts, the hopeless longing after the ultimate illusion: happiness. A wise man's wish on New Year's eve would be for a few glimpses of it.


  1. That is a wise wish. Mine is infinitely more demanding, and thus infinitely more 'dangerous.' And I would not have it otherwise. Neither the animal's obliviousness, nor the god's immortality.

    "Time is a river, the resistless flow of all created things. One thing no sooner comes in sight than it is hurried past and another is borne along, only to be swept away in its turn." Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

    "Now the New Year reviving old Desires,
    The thoughtful Soul to Solitude retires,
    Where the White Hand Of Moses on the Bough
    Puts out, and Jesus from the Ground suspires." Omar Khayyam recreated by Fitzgerald

    Happy new year, dare I say :)

  2. I can't say either 'May all your wishes come true', I feel you would then mess up with life's "order" (or "chaos" if you wish)and with the "logic" of existence.

    But may you still have a happy new year!
