I've managed to slide into 2008 largely avoiding the tendency for reflection on 2007 or planning what I see happening in 2008. There is a part of me that is happy about that as those activities are somewhat clich├ęd and arbitrary (just because our calendar year changes does not make January 1 any better than any other day for reflection). Of course, there is also a part of me that considers it an opportunity lost. As I regularly feel my life would benefit from review and planning, I should probably jump at every chance. Alas... I don't think I've started a sentence with "Alas" in three donkeys ages. Alas, while one chance to reflect and plan has passed, each new day brings with it another opportunity. Now, if I could just get around to it, I'd be set.

"Reflections of, the way life used to be",,, sang the Supremes once upon a time. Sooo, if they can sing their reflection of days gone by, so can I!! Out with the guitar today to touch last year and lyrically lunge into 2008... Here's to a full and fruitful (oranges & apples) time..

Yes, perhaps you should reflect not annual, but in phases of donkey's ages. :)
