don't stop believing

Every day you make progress. Every step may be fruitful.

Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening,

ever-ascending, ever-improving path.

You know you will never get to the end of the journey.

But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the

joy and glory of the climb.

Sir Winston Churchill
my word for the year. journey. may 2009 be an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path.


(oh, yeah, that song you now have repeating endlessly through your thoughts? that's my gift to you!)

Great word! (And thanks for the song!)

I have had my word picked out for a couple of weeks now, and just haven't gotten to posting about it yet. Maybe today!

I hope 2009 is a wonderful journey for you!

I don't know what song you're all talking about...!

That's a good word choice. It's sort of not committing yourself to a new concept, just keeping in mind what's going on. Does that make sense?? You should Google what people like Sir Edmund Hillary thougth about their ascent to the top of Everest. Journeys like that must give their travellers the most inspiring thoughts afterwards.
