A New Year's Toast

While traveling the fruited plain this December I enjoyed an article in the Life&Style section of The State. They asked readers to submit toasts to ring in the new year. I liked this one very much:

Here's to lying, cheating, stealing and drinking.
If you lie, may it be to protect the honor of a friend; if you cheat, may if be the angel of death; if you steal, may it be the heart of the one you love. Ane if you drink, may it be in the company of friends like this!

Here's to the children and youth who inspire the talented and gifted writers and artists who produce books I enjoy ever so much!
