Wish for 2009


2009 arrived here in Brampton wrapped in a cold blanket.  A very cold blanket.  This old man didn’t see it arrive, we were fast asleep when it arrived with all its promise intact.  

What do I wish for in 2009?  Peace.


Peace in a world that staggers back and forth from the brink.  The Cold War may be long gone but the proxies are out there rattling their sabres – India, Pakistan, Israel, Hamas……

Peace in the world economy.  Hopefully we’re nearing the end of this negative spiral.  My retirement plans are counting on it.

Peace in the air.  Can I have fewer air lesson cancellations due to weather this year please?

Peace to you and yours.
