Unless You Say It Is So (Goodbye 2011)


Here we are.
0800 hours New York Time.
Not very far from the turning point.

Old man 2011 moves on.
Over.
Out of the way.

Making room for Baby Year 2012.
Not a split second too soon!
"Uncle," we cry!
We've had enough of you, tumultuous '11!

Now is the time for planning and dreaming!

"There will never be a shortage of people to argue for your limitations. They aren't telling you your story, they are telling you theirs. If you agree with them, it becomes your story, too. " ~ Cynthia Occelli

Cynthia recommends you and I take a moment at the beginning of the new year to write, imagine and plot the pathways to our dreams. She told me "It's never too late, never beyond hope, never impossible . . . unless you say it is so."

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
