Happy New Year!

Lisa Rice wrote this.

It’s been a while since I’ve shared the poem below. Written by the father of my childhood best friend, it perfectly describes what’s behind and before us this of time year. Closed tablets. Open books. What do you plan to write?

CLEAN NEW BOOK
Midnight strikes, and the old year is gone. 

We close the tablets we’ve written on. 

Torn ‘twixt hope and doubt and fear, 

We open the book of an unlived year.
It’s ours to write the daily tale
Of how we conquer or how we fail;
Of struggle and effort and hope that wakes
Like a song in the heart when a bright day breaks.
~ Ben Johnson
