ANOTHER YEAR JUST FLASHED PAST MY EYES
December 23, 2013 4 Comments
I accept that each passing year seems to go by faster than the one before … I blame global warming and the global financial crisis. I would normally also include French President Francois Hollande and his Socialist Government in any negative list, but they are already so hated by all the French people that it doesn’t seem to result in the same heights of satisfaction for me to abuse them that it once did.
I intend to spend the last days of 2013 with family and good friends eating and drinking more than I should, and adding numerous new laugh lines to a face that I already find hard to recognise anymore.
To my family and friends, my colleagues in the exciting young companies I work with and who tolerate my interference and story-telling, the polite people who sit through my speeches, my Facebook friends, my mentees, my Linkedin connections, my fellow twitterites, my blog subscribers, my blog accidental drop-ins and even those bankers and government officials who email me because they have found a serious money opportunity from a namesake of mine who died intestate, I wish you all a wonderful end to 2013.
May the coming year fill your life with wonder, and may the fates fulfil even your wildest dreams.
In the words of Australian cartoonist, poet and cultural commentator Michael Leunig “If you see anything mysterious or unusual, just enjoy it while you can”.
I will be back on air on January 6th, 2014.
