I’m looking ahead to 2018 and want to share my choice for the new year’s motto. I see it as the only way forward.
Not your usual epitaph, but Lake View Cemetery in Cleveland isn’t your usual cemetery.
This ends a year of Around Here. I’ll still take photos in 2018 and may share some with you, but less systematically.
Happy New Year.

This made me smile. I consistently talk to myself and one of the most common things I say is, “Get over yourself, Missy!” I try to get over all the things that weigh me down, including myself . . . not that I’m always very successful. I hope you (and us all) find 2018 a calmer, gentler year . . .
My resolve is that I not drag around resentments to gnaw on, knowing that I most likely have magnified the situations beyond all recognition. Another motto I try to follow is “If we couldn’t laugh we’d all go insane.” – Jimmy Buffet
Happy and safe New Year to you and yours!
Many thanks and the same to you all in sunny, warm San Diego.
I’ve enjoyed your series. I’m not sure about “getting over it.” Not sure I want to sink into complacency. At the same time, I’d sure like less stress than I’ve felt over the past year. blech… (And on a better note, I wish you a very happy and healthy new year!)
Many thanks for your best wishes for 2018, and right back at you. “Just get over it” is my reminder to let go of resentments and stop rehashing would have/could have/should haves. 2017 did much to shred my faith in many things. I need to look ahead at the long view.
I get it. Feel free to email if you want to chew it over — in the positive way! — any more. Thanks much!
