AT NEW YEAR'S EVE
Tonight, at the stroke of 12 midnight,
where ever you are,
whatever your time zone,
we begin a new year.
Some of us make resolutions,
promises of change for 2014.
But new year's resolutions
are a bit like babies . . .
"fun to make, but difficult to maintain."
There's a Spanish/Latino tradition
of eating 12 grapes at midnight
for good luck . . . one grape with
each strike of the bell at midnight.
12 grapes for good luck!.
A wonderful tradition.
(With no disappointments.)
and Happy New Year.
