We the people love beginnings. Yet for all of the attendant anticipation, promise and hope, they're so fleeting. Except for a pomp here and a circumstance there, life mainly happens in the ever after. Happily, every 24 hours presents a shining new opportunity to love and cherish each other and the world around us. So toss the birdseed and pour the bubbly: today really is the most important day of your life.
