Two Thousand Ten.

A good even number.

Hopefully a more even year.

With less Sturm und Drang.

Hopefully more balance.

Less chaos.

More tolerance.

Less violence.

More giving.

Less getting.

Perhaps in 2010.

More jobs.

Less fraud.

More compassion.

Less destruction.

More healing.

Less fleeing.


Perhaps the center can hold.

And prove Yeats wrong.


The Year That Makes Sense.

What a concept.

More intelligence.

Less ignorance.

More common sense.

Less nonsense.

More individual responsibility.

And less of Big Brother.


Perhaps more patience.

And less desperation.

More loving kindness.

Less cruelty.

More food.

Less hunger.

More strength.

Less victims.

More forgiveness.

Less hatred.


The Year to Dream.

The Year to Make Dreams Come True.

More beauty.

Less horror.

More peace.

Less disease.

More grace.


In 2010.

That’s Mason.
