Where were  you last night at midnight? Would you have wanted to be somewhere else?


On Dec 31 2015 New Years Eve I was at the beach by 8:00 pm to watch the festivities set to begin at midnight, however the rowdy drunken personalities of many of the people caused me to consider returning home since I was not in the mood for such silliness.

Just before the stroke of midnight, The Dave Mathews Band, song “True Reflections” played softly in the background as I sat on my couch reading Provenance: The Novel.

So, I was exactly where I wanted to be enjoying a calm easy feeling and totally at peace.

Happy New Year to all! 🙂
