i don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing - take your pick: in case you were disappointed by the way 2013 started out - take this opportunity to start over again. it's Chinese new year - so have a happy one! this is the year of the snake - not one of my faves - but marking the passing of time could be considered progress - or not... when i lived in Thailand it was really surreal - we had 3 new year celebrations a year - Western, Chinese and Thai. it really made you feel like time was flying. anyway - if you need an excuse to have a fresh start or a celebration - be my guest. if holidays get you down - forget i mentioned it!

There’s a special providence in the fall of a sparrow. If it be now, ’tis not to come. If it be not to come, it will be now. If it be not now, yet it will come—the readiness is all. - Hamlet, Act 5, sc 2
