Wow. Another year is coming to an end.
I’m going to be ending this year in the same way that I ended last year (same what and where), with one notable exception. I’ll be working my musical magic on New Year’s Eve, just like I did last year. But, this year, SSG Dizzy will not be with me. Of course, that’s not news. He’s been in and out of Iraq, every other year since 2003. What is news is that, this time next year, I will very likely be observing New Year’s Eve the same way (same what and where) but without SSG Dizzy (in ten years, we have never missed any annual holiday two years in a row).
I know I am not the only blogger looking on this world in melancholy. It’s hard to think positive about the next year when the last 7 years have been a waking nightmare. I have as much as anyone to be deeply concerned about my immediate future (every day begins with a prayer that I will not get a “special” knock at the door or an urgent phone call). But, the best way I know to get through each day (the ONLY way I know to get through each day) is to think positively and focus on things that lift my spirit.
