Twenty Seventeen

Congratulations if you can read the above text. You’ve made it into the new year. Last time the year was a prime number was six years ago in 2011, the next time won’t be another decade until 2027.

Seventeen years have gone by since 2000, and the whole Y2K scare. I remember it like yesterday, I was a junior in high school back then. Really doesn’t seem that long ago.

We’ve entered the future, a new era in our country’s history. None of really know what will happen this year, at best it’s an educated guess. We have a new president and large Republican majorities in congress, who will certainly want to take us in a new direction. What it really means in our lives, is to be seen.

Today I will probably go out hiking then camping later on in the Adirondacks. Been a long time since I’ve been up here, and I like to get out to the mountains from time to time. It would be fun to kick off the new year hiking then spending the night in the woods.

I look forward to the new year and the challenges it will bring.

Well folks, another year has come to a close. 2016 is one for the books, one that will be at some point in the future looked back at with nostalgia, as we look back those silly cars we used to drive back in the day. The times come and go, in a few short weeks we enter the Donald Trump era of our country’s history.

Change is good, and indeed the flipping of the calendar will mean change. But then it’s just a continue, history doesn’t start or end on a calendar day. Sure there will be new laws that will go in effect and we’ll have to write 2017 on all our paperwork, but really is December 31st that much different then January 1st?

Enjoy the egg nog and fondue one more night. Soon the Christmas lights will be shut off and we will be in the cold of January. But fear not, another spring isn’t that far away.
