12/31/2003 Entry: "Poland Or Limbo Or Lower Manhattan."

This year I seem to be unable to accomodate most of my New Year's traditions superstitions. No haircut (got one before Christmas for the Boyfriend's Family Photo.) No black-eyed peas and collard greens (I didn't make it to the grocery store today, nor did I especially want to.) No changing into pink or yellow underwear at midnight (Probably won't be wearing any...woo!) I don't know that any of these things have made my year any more or less lucky anyway, so I'm not so concerned.

But I usually pick a song for the New Year, and since you won't be here to listen to me play it at midnight, I'll let you listen at your convenience: Rufus Wainwright's "I Don't Know What It Is".

Sick of looking around at friendly faces
All declaring a war on far off places.
Is there anyone else who is through
With complaining about what’s been done unto us?
So I knock on the door
And I am on a train
Going god knows where to
To get me over.

Hope we get there soon. Hope you have a Happy, Safe and Peaceful New Year, however you celebrate it.

Wait. When you say "Hope we get there soon," what kind of "getting there" are you talking about?

Nice song - but I'm a bit unsure about the message it holds for a new year :-)

Nala: Dziekuje...To you as well.

Jason: Every kind of Getting There. w00t!

Jase: True, he wrote it just before entering rehab, but it could be about any kind of life change. That's how I interpret it for the New Year: This could be good, could be bad. Won't know until I get there. But it's time to "take a step that is new" and figure out where I'm going.
