365

One resolution at a time
left wasted by the road side
I have become a work
of demolition
prompting
not decay
but
evolution

So what.
Traditions
left to rest along
the way - bent and
curved or
disgarded -
time and energy
the masters of
my fate

pre-empting commonly
hoped goals
for convenience
sake and
my own

three hundred and sixty five days
one at a time
changing the way
I do things in
these changing times

and next year I
get to start all
over again

One day, one hour, one moment at a time....no more.

Very wise, especially the sentiments, the realization, in the first stanza.

Have a blessed course of beginnings (and yes, even of continuity) this year. ^_^

Hey Frankles!

How are things at the old Fuchs Lubricants? I tell you, I don't miss answering the phone and hearing the laughter at the other end.

I hope that life is treating you well. You'll always be my buddy. Give me a call sometime!
