Rage Against the Dying of the Light

Trip to Edmonton 6-10 043

Do not let 2017 be the end of your creative endeavors! Rage against the dying of the light. I think of it like sitting stands at the Daytona Five Hundred and watching the cars circle the track. As they come past me they go full speed ahead roaring into the next lap. This is the way I see 2018. Let’s go roaring into the next lap and not let up until we cross the finish line into that “good night” that Dylan Thomas speaks about.  Don’t come to that finish line wishing you had pushed a little harder. Choose to rage against the dying of 2017 and make 2018 the best year yet!  Don’t live on wishes, feeling sorry for what you did not do.  Live, enjoying what you have and will accomplish this year.

Do not go gentle into that good night
Dylan Thomas, 1914 – 1953

:Trip to Edmonton 6-10 043“Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light……”
