Friends,I’ve been thinking about changes this week. The thought evolved from an earworm planted by the news of David Bowie’s passing (turn and face the strange) and has grown to a broader contemplation. This time of year, change abounds. Take New Year’s resolutions. That obstinate desire to change. By now most of you have identified some thing or other you wish to change in the new year -and perhaps have already changed your mind about going through with it. Personally, I’ve been going through some career change. Of course, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Take the Football Rams (no, really, take them, they haven’t had a winning season since 2003). They’re going back to Los Angeles. Also, as many of you know, I’m into donuts on Friday. So, I decided this morning to go to Holy Donuts (a hole-in-the-wall shop whose slogan is “man does not live by bread alone”) and procured a dozen of these tasty treats which are sitting near my desk. Come grab one and celebrate this long weekend’s eve with me.
