It's already 2006 in India. About 12 more hours and I will march into 2006 too. Phew! Or rather, wow :-)!
2005 has been one fast year - it just sped by, whooosh! Some joy, some sorrow, some successes, some failures, some fulfillment, some disappointments - as in previous years, 2005 had them all. And yet another year in my life is going to be marked up and accounted for. I am a bit different from what I was a year go. For sure I am older. I hope I am wiser too...
2006? I dont know what it holds for me. Oh, I do have plans about what it should hold for me. But then, when was the last time any year went according to how I thought it should go? I have a list of things to do in 2006 (not resolutions, a to-do list only - resolutions will be broken :-)) - and will cross my fingers that at least some of them get done.
Nothing about me will have changed in the next 12 hours. I will still be me. But somehow a new year feels like a nice, new, clean slate to start scribbling on again. I have great hopes from the new scribbles :-D!
In the meantime, wishing you all a very wonderful, prosperous, exciting and successful new year 2006. Peace!
Updated: I thought the post looked dull without the customary picture. So added a picture of New Year tiara I got last night :-D!
