New Year’s Eve Eve

The night before the night before the new year is a beautiful holiday.

Three hundred and sixty four days ago we were given an entire new year.  A field of fresh snow to walk on.  We laid on paths in it with our minds and hearts and then we walked them.

Tonight we look back on those three hundred and sixty four days of paths through the new snow and we ask our heart the question “Good or no good?  Or less good than we hoped?  Or less good than we could?”

We ask that question because we have one thing waiting for us which we will never get again — a fresh day of 2017.

This day of 2017 can be a microcosm for our entire year of 2017.  It is an entirely fresh field of snow, creamy and patient!  How will we walk on it right now with our minds?  How will we walk on it tomorrow with our feet?

It’s a special day because it ends by turning into a special eve– new year’s eve.   But it’s not that special because yesterday turned into a special day too — it began as the eve of the eve of the eve of the new year and then became the eve of the eve of the new year at the stroke of midnight!

Happy eve of the eve of the new year!

  1. Call me crazy (“You’re crazy.” “Thank you.”), but it seems to me that we can treat every day the same way: as a blessing. Whatever happens will happen. We will deal with it positively and constructively. Happiness will come unsought.

    As for snow — ugh — I guess it’s a blessing, too, though I’m still not sure how. 🙂

  2. Happy New Year 2018!!!; indeed we have just only one day more to do a list of well ✅ or what a shame! You have done a great reflection & a good step for a new beginning, 🥂 Thanks for sharing your thoughts, experiences and issues during 2017.🎆
