Is there as much excitement in the air for you as there is for me? Winnie-the-Pooh says that it's not the moment that you you're eating the honey that's the best moment, it's the moment before you start to eat the honey; that moment when you savor the awareness of anticipation. That feeling, being aware of anticipation, is how I feel about this coming year. Exciting, wonderment, thrilling... all of these things combined.
