New Years Day is always a good time to STOP and take stock. As we get older, we tend to more and more be like Janus, of Roman Mythology fame. His two faces served him well. They gave him the power to look back at where he had come and to see ahead towards the future. Me? I like to think I've learned from my past experiences, mistakes as well as successes, and look ahead towards uncharted waters with excitement, tempered with caution. It's what I was taught as a child, and it has served me well. My resolves for the coming year are few but so very important to me and the ones I love. I'll continue to follow a simple credo: Make a plan; Keep to the plan; Plan for the unexpected.
