(Just in case you hadn't noticed)
I'm not too big on all the contemplative stuff people like to get into at this time of year. I mean, I contemplate plenty, but it's not fun. I like my New Years Eve to be fun! You've probably come across statistics labelling Christmas and New Year as the most depressed times of year. Apparently that's not true anymore, but whatever. It's still a time of contemplation and resolutions which leads to regrets, cold short days which contribute to SAD and the enormous pressure to have fun often driving people to the hospital to get their stomachs pumped.
So I'm going to try to wave the last decade goodbye swiftly and carelessly, with no attempts to fight the continual marching onwards of time or any nostalgic/regretful wallowing in memories.
Or does none of what I've just written ring true at all for you? What's your attitude to time and memories? Do you sometimes wish you were a small child again?
(Me, this time last year. It was sunny and I'd transported over a decade into the future)
