New Year’s Expectations…

It happens every year.  Somewhere or another you’ll find a cartoon depicting the old year as a very old man with a long beard – and the new year as a baby.

The idea of using a baby to represent a new year goes back to the 19th century.  Maybe even further back.  And it’s easy to understand why.  Babies are a new beginning.  A new life.  And for those involved in that life, a new way of looking at the world.  New joy.  And challenges.
