Vacation From A Vacation

(First published on December 31, 2008

What’s good about this very long holiday is that we still have a few more days of rest after the culmination of festivities on New Year’s Day. Just imagine what it would be like if we had to get back to work on January 2. We need a vacation from a vacation.

It’s 8pm on New Year’s Eve as I write this, and already the cells in my body are starting to tingle. Four more hours to go, and a year has passed. I do not wish to bore anyone by talking about my ritual on the last hour before midnight (I am sure most of us have our own), but for me and for most of us, I guess, this is a very special hour.

Next year is going to be a very busy year for me. Again I do not want to bore anyone by talking about my schedule for 2009, but all I can say is that I am looking forward to it with a mixture of excitement and anxiety and a lot of other emotions. I’m sure you are, too.

For a lot of us, 2009 is going to be tough, and we try to make resolutions to make us more effective in dealing with the challenges. I’m not gonna bore anyone by talking about my resolutions, but I need those resolutions to keep my mind clear and my instincts heightened, because I’m gonna need all my mental and emotional resources to deal with the challenges for the year.

But tonight and tomorrow I’m going to party hard. After all, I still have a few days of vacation from this vacation.

Happy new year!
