Thoughts for New Year’s Day, 2019

“As wave is driven by wave
And each, pursued, pursues the wave ahead,
So time flies on and follows, flies, and follows,
Always, forever and new. What was before
Is left behind; what never was is now;
And every passing moment is renewed.”

― Ovid, Metamorphoses



New Year’s Resolutions for 2019:

To Laugh More

To Step Outside and Look Up At Least Once Every Day

Nona Blyth Cloud has lived and worked in the Los Angeles area for the past 50 years, spending much of that time commuting on the 405 Freeway. After Hollywood failed to appreciate her genius for acting and directing, she began a second career managing non-profits, from which she has retired. Nona has now resumed writing whatever comes into her head, instead of reports and pleas for funding. She lives in a small house overrun by books with her wonderful husband.

    Every “then” is replaced by “now”. Every future moment becomes “now”. So all we really have is “NOW”. Let us live in the now, not the past or future!
