I don’t have any brilliant revelations regarding the past year, nor any brilliant musings for the upcoming year. That would be a little presumptuous of me to think I was brilliant any way. Which I am not. So how could I have any brilliant revelations or aspirations any way? That is rhetorical. I could have a brilliant revelation or aspiration just by shear luck. Yes, that could happen.
Let’s just leave it at that, shall we?
But I do have a thought or two about the year’s ending and a new one beginning. A few years back husband and I rang out one year by riding out in to the wet and darkness of a bike trail as the clock ticked towards midnight. At midnight we stopped. Happy New Yeared the world and rode back to start the new year. I think it was the best New Year’s activity ever. This year he suggested running out the old year and running in the new year. Of course I love the idea.
Nothing too philosophical about it. I just want to be doing something to end a year, and doing something to start it. Something physical. Something active. Something that says life is worth this! Life is moving! Living is being an active participant. And I want to be an active participant.
I hope this year will be full of active fun. Active work. Active living. So why not start it out by running it in?
I think I shall. And maybe that is pretty brilliant after all.
