Yesterday a friend sent me a link to an Auld Lang Syne video (the one above). I held off looking at it remembering that I always need a dictionary to figure out what that song means. It piqued my general aversion to celebrating a meaningless date on the calendar.
If this all sounds grouchy, it's meant to.
Then I watched the video ... while I still am not planning on seeing midnight, my "Oscar the Grouch" attitude disappeared. It is lovely. It makes you think. It makes you grateful for life.
Watch it with the volume up. Enjoy!
