I want to thank all of you who read and contribute to this humble blog. It's been wonderful to meet most of you (lol) and fascinating to meet all of you in that weird way that we meet on line.
It's been an interesting year, both politically and personally. Highs, lows, rage, compassion, all emotions were evoked. I suspect that for people who are not politically inclined, the year was a yawn. I speak of those who neither follow politics at home nor abroad. Life seemed to go on in Canada and in a way it did, but I believe that many have not realised what is really happening.
That said, my feeling is that 2008 will be an illuminating year. Push will come to shove I think and reality will begin to rear it's head. Whether it's ugly or pretty will of course depend on your perspective.
So, let's look forward to a year of more honesty, more flashlights shining where it's important to look, more objective reporting providing fact rather than partisan fiction.
Am I an optimist? To be sure, but in a world that seems not to concern itself with realism, you only have two other choices don't you?
What story will emerge as the sleeping giant? We shall see and that is for another day.
I wish all of you the very best in 2008. Make it your year to live your dream, however you can make that happen.
See you next year!
