Your Move

A cup of kindness

Responses from readers to the question, "Where do you intend to be on New Year's Eve?"

When the familiar strains of "Auld Lang Syne" are played, ringing in the Year 2000, I will be doing what I've done for the last thirty sober New Year's Eves--I'll be playing the song! One of the dubious honors of my sobriety has been to witness the grand spectacle of amateurs drinking their way out of the old year and into the new. I do it, as always, from behind the piano, and with a hearty prayer of gratitude for another sober year.
