I am a person of many superstitions. Wishes and luck account for the cornerstones of my own personal religion. One such prayer that I've always believed in is the utterance of "Rabbit, Rabbit" as the first words upon waking up on the first of year. Some people believe this to work on the first of every month, but in my world, I confine this very special wish for January 1st as a way of bringing good luck for the entire year. I've remembered to do this exactly once before...with today being twice.
After what has been a very difficult year for me, I'm grateful to the god of rabbits for granting me this bit of hope that 2013 will a year of good fortune. May it be for all of you as well.
