To a New Year, a new start...

By Vichara

What makes you think makes you feel. What makes you feel ignites a change. The choice is yours if the change will escalate the good intentions of the bad intentions you have. While simplistic in structure this catalyst point can be profound. As this year winds down on our calendar many look at the impending New Year with the outlook of a new start, another chance to start afresh. While it’s wonderful to hold this intent be realistic in that there can never be immediate change and there will always be lingering personality traits that will always linger. Let them linger and if you see them as negative let them linger as well. Be cognizant of them but not letting them be dominant will allow those good intentions that you dream for the New Year to form a new foundation of thoughts and actions.

Did you know?
Zanies have been theatrical buffoons since the heyday of the Italian commedia dell’arte, which introduced those knavish clowns. The Italian "zanni" was a stock servant character, often an intelligent and proud valet with abundant common sense, a love of practical jokes, and a tendency to be quarrelsome, cowardly, envious, vindictive, and treacherous. Zanni, the Italian name for the character, comes from a dialect nickname for Giovanni, the Italian form of John. The character quickly spread throughout European theater circles, inspiring such familiar characters as Pierrot and Harlequin, and by the late 1500s an anglicized version of the noun “zany” was introduced to English-speaking audiences by no less a playwright than William Shakespeare (in Loveas Labouras Lost).
