Making Things Better

disappointed 2013 is same as 2102 copy_edited-1 The little girl in this cartoon just woke up on the morning of January 1, 2013–and she was expecting things to be different. She’ll have to learn that in time, the year may look different than the previous year. It may not be different much at all. It also may take some insight to see how it is different, which she will hopefully have someday when she’s older.

We ring in each new year, make resolutions, have hopes, dreams and aspirations. What we do know is that we can actually do things to make a given year better–it doesn’t have to be an accident.

Thank you for helping to make my year a good one. I really appreciate your attention to my words and cartoons here –without you, it would be kind of silly to keep doing this. I enjoy sharing my thoughts with you and hopefully I can make you laugh.

So, thank you. I wish you all a very good 2013. And let’s see what we can do to make 2013 a better year than 2012.
