Culture

It’s just a few days into the new year, and I already…

Today, is the first day back to work for many. The first day back to school for many. I have yet to date anything 2023. But, it already feels a bit dark. I hope I am wrong. I want to be optimistic. New year. New goals. New hopes.

Yet, drug prices are already set to go up this month on hundreds of drugs. A horrible sports accident happened live on television when Damar Hamlin appeared to suffered a carduac arrest after a tackle. He was on the field getting CPR for nine minutes while sportscasters debated whether to resume the football game after a five minute break. On the television show, 60 minutes they ran a segment, noting that scientists say the earth is in the midst of a sixth mass extinction. According to them, Earth’s wildlife is running out of places to live. This ine may seem silly but was annoying. On CNN for New years Eve, the powers-that-be didn’t allow their show hosts to drink and be merry.

To me, we are starting off with gloomy events and a general sense that we don’t know what to expect.

  2. It’s an odd start, what with getting Monday off, but I’m looking forward somehow to making this year mine. The book that took many years to write is published, the reviews are good, and I’ve started the third book in the trilogy (I was a little worried that readers of the first and second might not be happy with the heavy decisions made at the end of the second – but all indications are they are more than satisfied – phew!).

    I have started a couple of hares already; I’m waiting to see if any make it.
