This is a year full of promises and hopes – at the age of 40 years and spending more than half of his life as a teacher (19y v. 21y) all he can pray for is that good health and unending passion to teach will continuously flow from an imaginary fountain of youth and scholarly wisdom and be granted upon him by the Divine Providence.
