Often I forget to remember we never know what the new year will bring. But sometimes this unknown is particularly (and may I add for any politicians reading ciwt - unnecessarily) pronounced. So I wish us courage, hope, patience, wisdom, resourcefulness, creativity, and luck along with good old Happiness!* as we enter 2013. In the (slightly modified) words of The Grateful Dead, we will get by, we will survive and we will take our individual and collective journeys FURTUR.
