Happy New Year


This is where people go to celebrate the new year in Rio de Janeiro.
Every year is the same.
Boring, boring and boring.
I used to go when there were not all these lunatics and all these fires.
We could even see other people because it was not so crowd. We could walk along the beach. Then the thing became... market.
I guess you all know damn well the power of money.
In 2009, Chinese New Year will begin on January 26th. This is the year of the cow.
Happy New Year. I don't know why all this fuss about it all but that's the way we were told time has to be counted and I don't know why we have to start counting on the day the earth starts another orbit around the sun or is it the end?
This is immaterial. Why not celebrate while it is on the middle of the orbit?
I believe humans are too obsessed with beginning and end.
What about the middle? What about in-between? Why not a daily celebration to the earth's orbit? Why not celebrate every day?
Give me a break.
Happy new year....
Addendum: It's 11 pm. The new year has just arrived and everybody is happy. Daylight saving time. You see? Now it's a little more clear what I'm trying to say.
