HAPPY NEW YEAR 2006!...
Have you ever really examined the Auld Lange Syne song phrase by phrase?
"Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne!"
Looking at the first few lines the of the poem it seems to ask us, "should we forget our old acquaintances? Should we forget those from our past? And should we forget the old times? The times of long ago?"
Of course, we shouldn't. At New Year's Eve it is appropriate to remember back to the people and events that shaped our lives. Who has helped shape your path this year?
"For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet
For auld lang syne!
So, is it in memory of past times -- in memory of those people and events of yesteryear, let us lift our glass and toast them with kind thoughts and appreciation. As we prepare to go on to a new year, a year of challenges yet to be known, of new joys and new sorrows, let us not forget the past. As we start our new adventure into the next year, let us acknowledge and salute the times of "old long since." For auld Lang syne.
At 9:03 p.m. MST it started snowing in the SW Colorado Rockies North of Bayfield, Colorado.
