We drove home from a pleasant, relaxing party through a glory of fireworks, fountains and showers of white exhulting in explosions and a new year. It reminded me of the evening in July a few years ago when my father and I drove back to Des Moines on Independence Day evening, fireworks blossoming then too in all directions.
It is the beginning of the 202nd decade CE.
It is 1/1/11 in calendar systems on both sides of the ocean.
I hope it is a good year for you.
