Why I am posting this now? With only a few days before winter solstice, I figured it is important to remember what good has come about this year, and prepare to do more good in the following year. If nothing else comes of President-Elect Obama’s presidency, that night of world-wide connections through celebration is a net-good.
When the flush of a new-born sun fell first on Eden’s green and gold,
Our father Adam sat under the Tree and scratched with a stick in the mould;
And the first rude sketch that the world had seen was joy to his mighty heart,
Till the Devil whispered behind the leaves, “It’s pretty, but is it Art?”
From Rudyard Kipling’s The Conundrum of the Workshops
