The New Year writing

Old things are new again.

The title of my post is taken from the New Testament, Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians; 2 Corinthians 5:17, if you care to look it up. Since it is a new year, I felt moved to make a  proclamation or pronouncement of some sort, and I like the way Paul pronounced and proclamated, but don’t worry, this isn’t a sermon, and I’m not a preacher.

I don’t make resolutions for the new year, and if I did I’m not sure I could keep them anyway. Sometimes new stuff comes up at different times of the year, stuff that either you’ve had a hand in causing to happen or it just happens. I’ve been trying to make finding a job happen. And it just so happens that I’m about to start training for one on January 12. I can’t go into details just yet, but it’s a stay-at-home job, full time, 40 hours a week with certain benefits.

And that’s my proclamation/pronouncement for 2015. See, I told you it wasn’t going to be a sermon. But do read some of Paul’s letters, he (and/or one or two of his scribes) was quite literary.

Goodbye!

I’m not much into statistics, of any kind. I don’t care how many views or likes or comments or follows or whatever else, I get here or on any of my other social networking sites. It just doesn’t interest me to know that kind of stuff. That’s why you’ll not see my “Annual Report from WordPress,” the “Your 2014 in blogging” review thing that a lot of you are posting. I’m pretty sure I posted mine last year, and it didn’t interest me then. So, why post it again? I’m almost certain none of you are interested in my boring blogging stats.

Instead I’ll just say Goodbye to 2014 and leave it at that. I’ll not list any stuff I did or didn’t get done, or any losses or gains, all that stuff is boring too. What matters most is to say that I lived and breathed, and I’m thankful for another year I got to do that. If the good Lord sees fit to allow me to do that much again in 2015, I’ll be satisfied.

I’ll leave 2014 and enter 2015 with a guitar pick in my hand, ready to play. I hope y’all are listening!

More music in 2015!!
