Good Bye 2016 -Will Auld Acquaintance be Forgot?

17j2dv09kt3ykjpg

What a year. What a wild transformative journey 2016 has been for us all collectively.  Even now people in New Zealand and Australia have already passed the threshold into 2017, a threshold that is moving across the globe as we speak.  As we look back and look forward we have two tales to tell ourselves. This is a time of reckoning, of coming to terms with that which has been difficult, even the gut wrenching and terrible, while finding the stories to carry ourselves forward with gratitude for both the lessons learned and the moments of splendor.

As you reflect on all that this year has been for you, may you find many beautiful things to pack up to bring forward with you into the infinite possibilities of 2017.  May the coming year bring you good health and happiness, and peace and plenty for all the beings of Earth. May compassion visit our hearts ever more. May Love reign.

To all of you infinite being souls sharing this crazy world with me:

       Thank You! & Happy New Year!

Namastè

Just a little something to sing this night….

Auld Lang Syne

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne.

Chorus:

For auld lang syne, my jo,
For auld lang syne,
We’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne,

And surely ye’ll be your pint-stowp!
And surely I’ll be mine!
And we’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

Chorus

We twa hae run about the braes
And pu’d the gowans fine;
But we’ve wander’d mony a weary foot
Sin auld lang syne.

Chorus

We twa hae paidl’d i’ the burn,
Frae mornin’ sun till dine;
But seas between us braid hae roar’d
Sin auld lang syne.

Chorus

And there’s a hand, my trusty fiere!
And gie’s a hand o’ thine!
And we’ll tak a right guid willy waught,
For auld lang syne.

Chorus

Should old acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
And long, long ago.

Chorus

And for long, long ago, my dear
For long, long ago,
We’ll take a cup of kindness yet,
For long, long ago

And surely youll buy your pint-jug!
And surely I’ll buy mine!
And we’ll take a cup of kindness yet,
For long, long ago.

Chorus

We two have run about the hills
And pulled the daisies fine;
But we’ve wandered manys the weary foot
Since long, long ago.

Chorus

We two have paddled in the stream,
From morning sun till dine;
But seas between us broad have roared
Since long, long ago.

Chorus

And there’s a hand, my trusty friend!
And give us a hand of yours!
And we’ll take a deep draught of good-will
For long, long ago.

Chorus

    ‘A right guid willie-waught’?’ Begging the question: what is a ‘willie-waught”?”
    [The line roughly means to have a goodwill or friendly drink.”
    I just had to look it up! ………….and here I thought I was up on Auld Lang Sine!

      I retrieved the words from a Scottish cultural site- I am a bit befuddled by many of the Scots words contained… Xo
