Should Old Acquaintance Be Forgot ...

"In victory, you deserve Champagne, in defeat, you need it." Napoleon

On New Years Eve 2009 I'm not sure which of Napoleon's occasions inspired the Champagne. In ending a year and closing a chapter spotted with mistakes and misgivings I am finally admitting defeat. I was not always the person I could have been.

But then I think of 2010 and the endless hope & possibility that lay in 365 days to be better. I made it here and to me that's victory: after it all, to still be standing.

Happy 2010 Darling Readers!
