My Wish for You for 2010
To All of My Friends
Today I was thinking of the play Sunset Boulevard as I clean my spare room to make room for family visiting us this Holiday Season.
In the play "Sunset Boulevard" my favorite song runs: "Ring out the old, ring in the new, a midnight wish to share with you. Your lips are warm, my head is light, were we alive before tonight? I don't need a crowded ballroom. Everything I want is here. If you're with me, next year will be the perfect year". It was sad in the sense that the faded movie star was trying to cling to her youth and a time of a bygone era.
In the tragic end, she shot the young writer and became mad. We can not cling to the past. It imprisons us. We can, at will, bring it back to the present by our thoughts but the present is much more exciting, holds more promise. The present moment is really all we have. It is where our power is, to create the future.
With this, I wish you a great Holiday Season and I wish your 2010 to be the best yet. May it bring you joy, laughter, magic, and more important, love.
I will end with an old Kodak Commercial :
"Celebrate the moments of your life"
Warmest wishes from the heart, Melinda
