AT THE END
OF A YEAR
Quote for Today - December 31, 2012
Year: "A period of three hundred and sixty-five disappointments."
Ambrose Bierce [1842 - c. 1914] The Devil's Dictionary 
We are not sure of the date of Ambrose Bierce's death - because he disappeared into Mexico to seek "the good, kind darkness" in 1913. His The Devil's Dictionary was first published as The Cynic's Word Book - and that's exactly what much of it is.
Looking at your year, looking at your appointments in 2012, what were the wonderful moments - the graces - the gifts - the splendors and what were the disappointments?
