What is it about new:  new cup, new underwear, new coat, new kitten.  Why do we humans like new?  I guess it is simple:  it is a symbol for re-birth.  After a while all objects, including pets and boyfriends, do now awaken in us a spirit of freshness–so we like the new.

I like writing 2018.  It’s new.  This month I have several tasks to complete to feel that I am off on the right foot.  I will complete them and then zoom on to February, as the months and years zip past as on a high speed freeway.
