Everyone at this time seems to feel we should wish each other a Happy New Year, as if by some divine intervention, this is the only day on which a new year begins. With so many “new years” being celebrated around the world, I wonder if the wish bestowed is often replacing the opportunity to wish everyone a happy new day, each and every day?

The reality is that a new year begins on each day. And many religions and countries celebrate their own new year on a different day. Perhaps then the wish of a new year can be looked as imply a kind act of respect towards anyone else’s “new year” than simply our own? What would happen if we wished each other a “happy new year” on each day?

Hold the thought…I’ll get back to you on this next year ;) .

And to all those celebrating a new year on January 1st, I wish you a good one too.

Sass Peress‘s insight:

Once the issue of "transporting electricity" from outer space is resolved, will other planets become harvesters for our needs? While solar energy is indeed non-polluting, I just wonder about whether or not covering the moon surface might affect others or our planet negatively"….thoughts?

Sass Peress‘s insight:

How lovely that our land is going to be desecrated just for a few oil companies to make tens more billions. When will they start to pay for our health costs associated with their emissions like nuclear companies pay to clean up their messes?
