odetoJoy    It doesn’t matter who you are.  You gave your best, your worst and everything in between.  Congratulate yourself for making it to here, prevailing or failing with your challenges.  It doesn’t matter who you are.  You are a worthy person and deserve to celebrate this one time, this one milestone of a thousand milestones.

Celebrate with me.   For jocundity, for exultation, for the sheer epic magnitude of emotion expressed in the music of Beethoven.  Prepare happily for Cry, Rinse and Repeat.  Feel what unbounded joy is like through his music.  Know that we are insignificant specks in a vast universe and yet, despite this fact, we create such works of unfettered jubilance.

It doesn’t matter who you are – Happy New Year – Thank you everyone who contributes to this blog and takes the time to read and comment here at DWR, may this year be kind to you and those you love.

Best Wishes,

The Arbourist
