Mom’s 90. She’s healthy and sharp and as many folks needlessly remind me, her being here is a blessing. I never tire of being reminded of that. I’m not much for making resolutions, but New Years Day is conducive to reflecting on your life and making plans for the near future and identifying hope. I don’t know anybody who is sorry about saying good bye to 2009 or a decade with pervasive disappointment, frustration and despair. Welcome 2010! Thank you for reading Dislocations. May you have health and long life and authentic hope. Sincerely to all, Happy New Year.
