Happy New Year

And so we’re told this is the golden age
And gold is the reason for the wars we wage
Though I want to be with you
Be with you night and day
Nothing changes
On New Year’s Day
On New Year’s Day

From “New Year’s Day” by U2

I’d like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year! Each year brings the hopefulness and sense of innocence of a child, hence the “New Year’s Baby” motif (an example shown above from 1908 in J.C. Leyendecker’s cover for The Saturday Evening Post a century ago). Let’s try to keep hope alive and retain some of that innocence, at least until Valentine’s Day, OK?
