2010 New start?

Many say that 2010 is the year of new beginnings. In fact, many friends I’ve spoken to say that January 2010 has been the pinnacle month for making drastic changes in their life. Frankly, I think it’s all crap. The Gregorian calender was made in part to measure the movement of the celestial bodies, but I think it it a continuous reminder of how finite our lives really are (certainly by 1582 they realized that). In all, 2010 has no more importance than 1974 or 1312. I’m not a pessimist, but a realist: the time we have on this planet is short. You can either work, play, find a happy medium of both, or play while working. The latter is what this blog is all about. I have not changed anything in my life over the past 10 – 15 years (well, small changes sure) and this public display of what’s happening through my eyes is intended for my friends, family and anyone else keen on doing things differently in their lives. From skiing in Zermatt, Switzerland, to sipping Mersault on a wintry afternoon in France; from biking in Girona, Spain, to eating steamers and chowdah in Marblehead, MA, I hope that within these rambles you’ll find something interesting to entertain and advise. If you have any comments, don’t keep them to yourselves. Let me know what you think – all comments will be answered in due time, regardless of how finite time is.
