A New Year...Let's Make it a Good One!

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!

KNB we do not agree on politics, but this is part of democracy we defend different points of views. I do not think you would want it any other way. Has you may or may not know I have been trashed made fun the way a school yard bully would do if you disagree with them.I presume you know who we are talking about. Only small minded people act this way, but this is his problem. That said KNB I sincerely wish you your readers and your family a very happy healthy and prosperous new year. I just hope that you would allow me to continue to post your blog thank you.

Busy day, so I apologise for taking so long to reply to you, but I want to thank you all for your kind comments.

penlan, thank you. You are too kind. It's always nice to hear/read that you are being read.

I hope you feel comfortable enough to comment again, but that of course is your choice.

John, Happy New Year to you and yours. You can post here whenever you like, you know my policy, open to all.

Marta, I couldn't agree more. Thank you for your contribution here. Your voice is clear and perhaps if more of us continue to speak up, we'll achieve your goal,that is if I read you correcly. The Canada that we love.

To all, may 2008 treat you well. Dream big! (No I wasn't a Dryden supporter, lol, though I like him.)

Tommorow is the day to get back to the nitty gritty, imo. Today was the time to envision this country how we want to see it.

I wish each of you the very best in 2008 and want to sincerely thank you for visiting this blog as you travel through this world of opinion.

Sappy as it sounds, I really am honoured that anyone would consider this blog worth reading.

Thank you!
