Magic and Maybes

Every day, they say, is a new beginning. A chance to reset, to start over, to redefine yourself.

They say.

But, also, they say the one thing you can never change about yourself, ever, is your personality.  Once you reach a certain age who you are is really set in stone.

Or in flesh.


Strangely, foolishly, I’m looking forward to the new year.

January 1 is not only the first day of the new year, it’s the first day of a new month that falls on the first day of a new week.

First, first, first.

Maybe, magically, when ’16 becomes ’17 all things will be better.

Maybe our nation won’t be fueled by hate.  Maybe Death will decide he took enough and give us a year away from dying.  Maybe…

Maybe a person can change their personality.

Maybe when the first day of the first week in the first month of a new year will wash away my anxiety and my depression, my fears and my frustrations.


So, in getting a jump start on the new year, in planning my resolutions, I’ve decided to learn.  Lets start with simple little things.

A new word every day.  A new Quote every day.

Join me, and learn things, and share things.

Lets, you and me, hold hands in friendship and peace and let us survive one more month before January arrives.

Lets look forward, as friends, to magic and maybes.

WORD of the DAY


  1. An even balance, equilibrium, an equal distribution of weight
  2. a counterpoise
  3. to equal or offset in weight, balance

QUOTE of the DAY

There is much pleasure to be gained from useless knowledge.
Bertrand Russell

  1. I am looking forward to a new year. A new beginning to start over and not look back on the mistakes of yesteryear. Instead looking forward as what is to come. Knowing anything is possible.

    • It does seem like most people I know have had a tragic year. Bad things keep happening, on a personal level as well as nationally and internationally.

      When you hit bottom there is nowhere to go but up, right?

  2. I am ready for the new year every day in hopes that things might finally change. Who knows, 2017 just might finally be that year.
