Subject: New Year's Resolutions - Got One?
Many look to a New Year with dread, others with hope. I hope that you and I be counted with the latter. What of re-enactors in general?|
As emulators or history, it seems our lot not to forget the past but to re-discover it, ingest it and share it with others. If we were to succeed in being effective, things that have been ineffective to accomplishing our true mission, ought to be put aside. Otherwise, status quo effectively blocks any efforts to improved quality, and mission delivery.
"The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul and a new nose; new feet, a new backbone, new ears, and new eyes. Unless a particular man made New Year resolutions, he would make no resolutions. Unless a man starts afresh about things, he will certainly do nothing effective."
Happy New Year!
