And so, another year ends, and Your Obedient Serpent will be more than happy to be shed of this one. I bid 2010 adieu with two upraised middle fingers and a shout of defiance.

It's time to face forward.

I've mentioned that sometimes, the radio talks to me, that the station I most often tune to has a tendency to play certain songs over and over again, and sometimes, the songs that cycle into that repetitious rotation are ones that directly address my moods and circumstances.

Back in November, as I was preparing to move a lifetime of belongings out of [livejournal.com profile] quelonzia's garage, this one played nearly every day.

I was going to post it tomorrow, but it played again, just minutes ago.

This, then, is my New Year: No Resolutions, Just Resolve.

I've got a world and a life and a future in front of me.

And it's mine.







Here I Go Again
Whitesnake
from the 1982 album
Saints & Sinners


I don't know where I'm going
But I sure know where I've been
Hanging on the promises in songs of yesterday.
And I've made up my mind, I ain't wasting no more time
but here I go again, here I go again.

Though I keep searching for an answer
I never seem to find what I'm looking for.
Oh Lord, I pray you give me strength to carry on
'Cause I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams.

Here I go again on my own
Going down the only road I've ever known.
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone.
And I've made up my mind,
I ain't wasting no more time.

Just another heart in need of rescue
Waiting on love's sweet charity
And I'm gonna hold on for the rest of my days
'Cause I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams.

Here I go again on my own
Going down the only road I've ever known.
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone.
And I've made up my mind,
I ain't wasting no more time.
But here I go again, here I go again,
here I go again, here I go.

'Cause I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams.

Here I go again on my own
Going down the only road I've ever known.
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
And I've made up my mind,
I ain't wasting no more time.

Here I go again on my own
Going down the only road I've ever known.
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone.
'Cause I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams.
But here I go again, here I go again,
Here I go again, here I go,
Here I go again ... .



Happy New Year, one and all!
