Out with the old?

Where does the time go?  Here I am, another year gone, and it’s out with the old, and in with the new!  Right?  Hold on there.  What’s up with this whole “out with the old, in with the new” thing?  What’s wrong with old?  I don’t know about you, but for me, at least, “old school” rocks!  As a matter of fact, URBEX (Urban Exploration for those not yet familiar with the term) is all about exploring the past, embracing it and showing it to others.  So I say, remember and cherish the old, while welcoming the new.  Learn from the past — from your own experience, or from someone else’s  — and apply what you’ve learned (successes or mistakes) in 2010 to your lives and the lives of others in 2011, and beyond.  After all, as American philosopher George Santayana wrote, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”  Happy 2011, everyone!
