For the Coming Year
Originally written for
the start of the new century, January 1, 2000.
May you get
a clean bill of health from your dentist,
your proctologist, your podiatrist, your
your plumber and the I.R.S. May your hair,
your face-lift, your abs and
not fall; and may your blood pressure,
your cholesterol, your white blood count and your
mortgage interest not rise.
find a way to travel from anywhere to anywhere in the rush
hour in less than an hour,
you get there may you find a parking space.
evening, December 31, find you together
beloved family and cherished friends,
in the New Year. You will
find the food better, the environment quieter, the cost
much cheaper, and the pleasure much more fulfilling
than anything else you might ordinarily do that night.
wake up on January 1st, finding that the world
come to an end, the lights work,
faucets flow, and the sky has not fallen.
go to the bank on Monday morning, January 3rd, and find your
account is in order, your money is still there and any
mistakes are in your favor.
ponder on January 4th;
this ultramodern civilization of ours
get itself traumatized by
slip of a blip on a chip made
out of sand.
May we relax about the Third Millennium
of the Common
Era, and realize that we still have 240 years until the
dawn of the Sixth Millennium of
Calendar by which time the computer
long since obsolete and so will
give you the strength to go through
a year of
some of the promises made be kept.
believe at least half of what the
candidates propose, and may
those elected fulfill at least half of
promise, and the miracle of reducing taxes
be awe struck by God's sense of humor
as you wrestle
with the possibility
that a professional wrestler could become
president of the United States.
you see in the mirror delight you,
others see in you delight them.
love you enough to forgive your faults,
to your blemishes, and tell
the world about your virtues.
telemarketers wait to make their sales calls
finish dinner, and may your check book
budget balance, and may they include
amounts for charity.
remember to say "I Love You" at least once a day to your
spouse, your child, your parent; but not
to your secretary, your nurse, your masseuse, your hairdresser
or your tennis instructor.
we live in a world at peace with the
of God's love in every sunset,
wonderful, astonishing, miraculous beat of our heart.
