Conquer the demons of the old year to make room for the new. Will 2011 be better? Probably not - as Dickens said, "it was the best of times, it was the worst of times." Still, savor the brief moment of optimism as the new year begins, the transitory shinning bubble of hopes, dreams and wishes that just might become true.
You never know.
