Here’s to a Great Great Year!

This week in between the holidays is a notoriously slow time for anyone who sells things for a living. I remember so well those many years, no, decades, anticipating January. Oh January. At the Valley Advocate when the office was in Amherst, we would have to take the first one or two weeks off unpaid. The paper was small, we just rolled with it.

Now if we are to beleive the onslaught of bad news, this 2009 will be the worst. But will it? I think we should become a unified force of good news. Of optimism and brightness towards the coming year. That we won’t bend to pressure to be depressed, but will fight for the light.

I am pushing to have a great year in 2009, and I hope that you also prosper.
