"The Optimist fell 12 storeys..
and at each window bar
he yelled to his friends who were frightened below....
Well, I'm OK so far !!!"
Well, 2009 is over, the 'noughties' are over. While there have been tragedies and hardships and recessions across the world, there have also been celebrations, and happiness and miracles. At the end of the day, we're still here, we're still standing, the earth is still spinning, the world still wakes up each morning and goes about its business, there is still a future to look to, still so much more undiscovered - waiting to happen.
Here's to optimism - here's to a prayer that when another year is over, we'll all still be OK.
A happy new year to everyone :)
