So being in my thirties means i have a recollection of this song... which spent 10 weeks on the chart with 3 weeks at #1.. in 1975 ( i was young..)
January, sick and tired, you've been hanging on me
You make me sad with your eyes
You're telling me lies
Don't go, don't go
January, don't be cold, don't be angry to me
You make me sad come and see
so yeah, (as the 10 year olds say).. There is something about January that i don't like. Yes it is a holiday time.. but yet for me there is the expectation of the year to come... the best i can explain this is:
how is it possible to live in the present without angst about what should or shouldn't be planned for the future? How much can you trust that things will just happen?
How can you avoid the feeling of 'ergh! i should've/could've of..' that comes with reflection. I don't have any regrets for 2008 - becuase i did what i wanted to! but January always throws up 'what do i want to do this year!' My usual approach is to just put the ideas out there into the universe ... and then things will happen...
So my first question I'm putting out there is - how do you start the year?
