Vladimir Lenin said, "There are decades when nothing happens, but there are weeks when decades happen." The frantic pace of 2016 demonstrates that this was a year filled with weeks where decades DID happen. I daresay this was just a warm-up for what is to come in 2017.
Happy New Year to you all. Never one to get enthusiastic over the movement of a hand on a clock, deluded soul that I am, for once I feel a little optimism for the state of the planet. Not much, but a little is far more than the vast deficit that we faced before.
Personally, some of the best times of my life took place over the past year. That was enough to make the rest worth while! The fact that the heart surgeon FINALLY gave up looking for non-existent problems was a wonderful gift as well! (I told him I was fine but what does the patient know?)
We have come a long way over the past year but basically we are just doing a little basic housecleaning. There is no "truth movement" any longer; shattered and divided into a thousand quarrelling folks, all unity gone.
Now, let's get to work and make it so.
"So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn."
Artist comment: Congratulations, USA ~ another dirty, bloody regime-change proxy war down the crapper.
