Happy new year!

I’ve updated my “Have a Pleasant New Year” article, a precursor to my “Zen Lawyer” column. I hope you experience plenty of pleasantness this year.

Chelsea, Sloane and I are always enthusiastic about the spirit of adventure and growth inherent in a new year. Possibilities.

If you are the sort who believes in New Year’s resolutions, here is a thought from Marcus Aurelius: “When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive — to breath, to think, to enjoy, to love.”
