The title of this post is actually part of a New Year’s toast given by Col. Potter in an episode of the TV show M*A*S*H and it describes pretty much how I’m feeling right now.
I’m still here, just have spent very little time on the computer and just haven’t been in the mood for anything requiring much in the way of thoughts and feelings. I got hit with the holiday blues a little before Christmas along with allergies, brain fog and trying to get rid of a cold. So, basically I’ve been hibernating – watching TV show marathons, movies, reading old magazines and not being on the computer that much. But, I promise I’ll get back into a regular routine soon and start catching up on the posts I’ve been missing. It seems I really need a mental break from things for a bit. No pity party, or anything like that – just a break to hibernate for a while.
I also realized today that I missed posting something for Sunday Quotes and New Year’s Eve/Day. Along with the sentiment in the title of the post, here’s a couple more to start off the New Year and I’ll see you soon.
And ye, who have met with Adversity’s blast,
And been bow’d to the earth by its fury;
To whom the Twelve Months, that have recently pass’d
Were as harsh as a prejudiced jury –
Still, fill to the Future! and join in our chime,
The regrets of remembrance to cozen,
And having obtained a New Trial of Time,
Shout in hopes of a kindlier dozen.
We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives… not looking for flaws, but for potential.
