Celebrating New Year’s Eve? That is not my thing.
That nasty sudden bangs, the people behaving bizarrely, the bad air, the moaning and groaning about being tight on cash and low wages … as opposed to this people are shooting / blowing their money in the air (literally!). Plain irrational (or you can call that batshit if you like).
Therefore the number of New Year’s Eve parties keeps negligible.
There was an invitation and I was glad for this opportunity to spend some time with others.
But again I flee the turmoil und the uncertainty.
I fear the journey home by night.
I usually do not travel by car after night closes in (because of the glaring lights on the opposite lane). And what’s more: It is not safe. And going by train as well.
So I went to the office doing some work, reading, writing and probably watching a documentary (as an interlude).
For years the days between Christmas and New Year have been filled with plans, ideas, projects … with all the lot that is important to me in the upcoming year.
Here I am at last.
Before midnight I will cast a glance melancholy. Because New Year’s Eve shows annually that I have a different mentality. And I will take this look gladly as well, because I have planned some enjoyable things the days to come: I will do things for the benefit of my health.
You probably should, too 🙂
Take good care.
