Things I'm Gonna Do This Year

Today, I was tempted to write about regrets.  But I'm not going to.

Instead, here's a quote by C.S. Lewis:

"The most intense joy lies not in the having, but in the desiring."

There are many threads that weave us together as members of this great human family.  One is our ability to dream.  Like climbing a great mountain, we feel each dream waiting for us at the next summit.  So we embark, all the while knowing that destination will only lead us to the beginning of another climb.  But that is our divinity.

Lasting joy cannot live on a plateau.  To desire that which is out of reach is our great hope for eternity.

And what of satisfaction?  What about disappointment?  They visit.  And they go.  But the thread remains strong, and along with it, our most intense joy.

So dream on.  And bring on 2013.
