Recipe for a Happy New Year

To leave the old with a burst of song,
To recall the right and forgive the wrong;
To forget the thing that binds you fast
To the vain regrets of the year that's past;
To have the strength to let go your hold
Of the not worthwhile of the days grown old,
To dare to go forth with a purpose true,
To the unknown task of the year that's new;
To help your brother along the road
To lend your shoulder to ease his load;
To add your gift to the world's good cheer,
Is to have and to give a Happy New Year.

To start the New Year off on the right foot, I'm attempting to get back to blogging and to updating this site with all of the wonderful things going on in the artistic career of MY Idol Taylor Hicks.

Perhaps the best way to do that would be to let you hear from Taylor Hicks himself what he has been up to and what we can look forward to in the coming months.

The unknown author of that verse you quoted was so "right on". Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

Happy New Year Bloom.

Cath, that quote pre-dates the 1930's and it still fits today.

Happy New Year ladies, it is looking to be a great year, well except for all the snow we have
