Happy New Year! | Eastern North Carolina Now | Now for the resolutions ... on second thought, forget the resolutions, and rather ...

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
    Now for the resolutions ... on second thought, forget the resolutions, and rather:

    Let's all be kinder to those that deserve it, and maybe a bit to those that we may think may not.

    Let's all be honest to others, but especially to ourselves for we all really deserve that.

    And let's all work hard to be better, to excel, and provide a productive service to our fellow Man.

    Let's be brave to face adversity, bullies and most especially liars of all stripes.

    And finally, let us love our country, and may we allocate all consideration possible to our military heroes. Never forget that these are the greatest of our patriots.

    That pretty much sums it up. This is what I do every year, and each year I endeavor to do it better, which takes ever more time. Time is our greatest resource.

    And in that wide presence of thought, may we all better employ that gift of time in the coming year, for it 'waits for no one, and it won't wait for you'.

"And time waits for no one, and it won't wait for me" - Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Mick Taylor (guitar solo). See the video and hear the video below (best I could find since the song was never performed live). This is one of my top 10 favorite Rolling Stones songs, and possibly my favorite guitar solo of theirs by the incomparable Mick Taylor. The guitar solo is a song unto itself.
