It is a few hours to the new year and 2017 is already laughing at us.Why are these people shouting happy new year? How do they know it will be full of joy and virus free?
Well! What you don’t know doesn’t hurt you. That is what we do with babies. We are ecstatic when they are born. They might turn out to be brilliant inventors that will make life possible without money. They might be chess players, farmers, doctors or thugs.O.K. Delete thugs, but it is the anticipation of good things to come, better things than the rough patch in 2016. In fact, the present year is already feeling like the bad guy to be shot dead with champagne corks and popping balloons.
We are happy about the new year because we love flower buds and their destination: blooming into bright flowers. We hope the sun does not scorch them to death or blown away by evil winds.It is happy new year because it might be the last time we smile in 2017. Thanks to electronic banking, we know that our credit cards have been busy as Santa Claus and paying them off will need four pay checks.
But hey! Back off. Don’t spoil the mood. Happy new year!
