New Year’s is a funny time for me. For years I always thought that if mankind were to somehow find enlightenment in a sudden sort of way, it would happen at the stroke of midnight and somehow the next year would start in such a much better way. Of course back then I lived in the Detroit area and some time after midnight there would be a commercial on TV for Mel Far, and with that I knew there was to be no great enlightenment that year. For anyone here who doesn't know who Mel Far is, let me show you.
Oh course as I've gotten older, I've figured out that if there were to be any enlightenment, it wasn't to be found on the television. If anything the TV is there to dummy down any engaging thoughts and abruptly stop any real forms of communication. Now I enjoy celebrating my holiday with my wife and friends without the boobtube and find I'm the one who feels the better for it. With that said, I hope everyone had a great New Year’s celebration! I know we did!
