an unusual practice for me.

i am not usually in the habit of quoting song lyrics on this blog. in fact, i don't believe that i ever have. my general position on it is, no one really cares and just skims over them with their eyes anyway. i still feel that way, but i am breaking this self-imposed ban today because this seems to be the only thing running through my head as midnight approaches:

it's been a
long december
and there's reason to believe
maybe this year will be
better than the last.

i can't remember
all the times
i tried to tell myself
to hold on to these moments
as they pass.

love and luck to all of you in the new year. thanks for reading for the past four months - i've got twelve more in store, so don't go too far.

Too funny. I always say I'll never quote song lyrics in my blog, and every once in a while I get an urge so strong I have to fight from actually doing it.

But why the hell not? I think it's theraputic, actually, and your lyrics were definitely appropriate for the day.

Have a great New Year! Here's to quarter life crises (had to look that one up!) being resolved.

what a depressing song. I remember a time back in college when I first really listened to that song. Makes me sad how time has flown since then.

What's amazing to me is how that song has come to me every December since what must be 1996... so in answer to your other post, maybe we are getting old.

Next thing you know we'll be those people at weddings who hear music and remember their childhoods 20 years earlier when they were dancing to those songs...

I'm not a huge fan of that particular band or others like them, but that song has such a haunting quality that I can still remember the first time that I heard it.

Happy New Year, and here's to it being better than the last.
