Saal Mubarak! A Very Happy New Year 2013!

In this new year I wish
We hold our dreams tight
And fight the good fight.
Continue to speak up
For as Hitchens said with prescience,
There will be time in the grave for silence.

Live, love, laugh and learn
Read a book for pleasure
But also because it raises questions.
The comfort of food, family and friends,
The affection of a pet, the bliss of solitude
Blue skies, bright sun, some rain, health and happiness.
