Happy New Year.

It is now 2008. January 1st. The old year has passed to make way for the new. We are all reborn for a time as we bask in the possibilities that the new year represents for us. Let us stop and examine the origin of the word January. It comes to us from the ancient Roman god named Janus. Janus was the god of doorways, of beginnings, and of the rising and setting of the sun, usually represented as having one head with two bearded faces back to back, looking in opposite directions. Just as Janus looked backwards into the old year and forward into the new, so too do we reflect on the events that have passed and look forward to the events that are to come.

Have a great year.
