Today is the first day of the rest of your year

01.01.11  What a binary way to start the new year!  I have a good feeling about this year.  I'm expecting my AT&T bill to be officially corrected in March.  We're also expecting a new baby in April... and that's just two out of 12 months.

And more good news!  Did you hear the Aztecs are saying they think they got their calendar mixed up, so the end of the world (as they know it) might not happen in 2012 after all.  It's good to have a contingency plan.  Prince was wrong about 1999 but he can still sing about Purple Rain especially with all the environmental problems we have -- Purple Rain has never seemed so relevant.  And while the lyrics about actually wanting to see us bathing in Purple Rain are a bit cryptic, at least they aren't literally talking about crypts.

We need to especially enjoy this infant stage of the New Year.  It's the babymoon!  Remember how fast 2010 grew old?  There will be challenges in 2011 to be sure but let's enjoy the brand new baby smell before we get a massive oil spill, a wiki leak or a dirty diaper.

There's 365 days of possibility and today is the first day of the rest of your year... or if the Aztecs are right, the rest of your life.
