How do you measure a year?
Like the song says (and you know this if you know the musical "Rent") there are 525,600 minutes in a year. But we all tend to measure time in different ways, at different times.
Looking back at 2007, I think I will measure it by ...
No doubt there are more, units of measure I can't recall now. But as I sit here, looking out at the possibilities of 2008, I am hopeful and a little bit scared. And yet, that's not gonna stop me from plunging headlong into what may be. 2007 was good to me, and I hope it was to you, too. So raise a glass, or a coffee cup, or a chocolate chip muffin, and together let's bid 2007 adieu as we welcome 2008 and everything it has to offer.
May we look back in 527,040 minutes (2008's a leap year) in gratitude for one another, joy for having shared another year together, and anticipation of what comes next. Salud!
