As we celebrate the new year with great hope for a respectable 2019, it is a practical tradition to reflect on the past and make a few plans for a better tomorrow.
Last year at this same time, I joined with many of the more than 7 billion people on earth and paused for a moment of reflection. We now find ourselves doing the same thing again.
Last year I wrote about our beloved dogs and the fact that on the Chinese calendar, 2018 was the year of the Dog. We now enter 2019, the year of the Earth Pig.
