The arrival of the new year brings with it a sense of change, of new vistas to explore and new friends to meet. It is a time of optimism and renewal, a time to look forward with a sense of hope. In the song Feeling Good by Nina Simone, she sings, “Birds flying high, you know how I feel. Sun in the sky, you know how I feel. Breeze driftin’ on by, you know how I feel. It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me”.
