The Whole Tone Has Changed

When I wrote my last post, A New Year, A New Direction, I wrote that regarding my personal life. That new direction also seems to apply with the inauguration of President Barack Obama. It is not my place as a Canadian to yay or nay American politics (though I must say that I absolutely adore President Obama), but I did want to comment on the change of tone that is detected in the air. With the previous government out, and the new government in, there is a whole new feeling in the air. Definitely a feeling of hope. A feeling of change. A feeling of inclusion. But mostly a fresh feeling....fresh new faces who are willing to get started to make changes.

With this fresh feeling, I was also struck with a reminiscent feeling...reminiscent of the Kennedy years.

Here's to you Mr.President. Your people are there to support you, and may you have a successful reign.

A New Year, A New Direction

It's probably too late for Happy New Year wishes, and if I wait long enough, I could probably sum up all of the year's wishes into one blog post. But, as with every other year, the same holiday celebrations happen every year, so what does it really matter anyway.

I haven't been here lately, because I have quite a few things on my plate right now. I also felt the need to re-establish the purpose for me keeping this blog. Re-focus. The title always summed it up for me...It's About Time. It was not intended to be a regular installment of what was happening in my life on a day-to-day basis. Gosh, if it was, you'd all be tremendously bored to tears.

So, this year promises to be a year full of change for me. You guys don't need all of the details, and because of the very personal nature of this, suffice it to say that they will not be published here, but, at the end of it all, I will either go insane or not. Hopefully not though.

So, if you wish to stick with me through this unknown journey, you are welcome to be my guest. It ought to be quite a story.
