It’s interesting they play Auld Lang Syne on New Year’s eve.
We usually just partake in the singing without knowing the meaning.
I never knew what Auld Lang Syne means till now. It means “Times long past”.
As a certain character in a movie said “‘Should old acquaintances be forgot’? Does that mean that we should forget old acquaintances, or does it mean if we happened to forget them, we should remember them, which is not possible because we already forgot?”
2008 will be, for me, always be remembered as the year where there are connections forged, connections strengthened and connections lost. The year of Sydney where I learnt something about the complexities of human relationships, sometimes happy, sometimes sad. But whatever they may be, there’s always a lesson or two to be learnt.
So here’s to my connections – the forged, the strengthened and the lost. My favorite version of Auld Lang Syne by Mairi Campbell and Dave Francis, from the SATC movie.
