Here's to a Happy New Year

A retrospective of 2016 
in the words of men and women wiser than yours truly.

Last year we said, 
'Things can't go on like this', 
and they didn't, they got worse. 
- Will Rogers

The New Year is a time for optimism...

You’re off to great places
Today is your day!
Your coffee is waiting,
So…get on your way.
- Dr. Seuss


perspective...
Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat. 
- F. Scott Fitzgerald

and hope.
“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.” 
Albert Einstein

Cheers to a new year and another chance 
for us to get it right. 
- Oprah Winfrey

I hope everyone enjoys a happy, healthy 2017
