Into a new year. The ride promises new opportunities. New risks. New travels. New adventures. New friends. Bumps in the road. Smooth stretches. New is not always good. That is inherently involved with the adventure of the ride.
There will be 0ld friends and places. Old restaurants. Old memories. [Some] old clothes. Certainly, old cocktails. Hopefully, old wines. Everything old is not worn thin. Especially when we have been around long enough to have discernment about what we keep with us for the trip.
So climb aboard then. The Epic philosophy is that the ride itself is the thing, not the destination. Jump in. Ride along. In the end, we are going to take the ride in any event. Let's make it great, good fun. Now boarding for 2010 and beyond! Onward and upward...
