Germans used to try to predict the future by dropping molten lead into cold water and “reading” the results.
Instead, why not anticipate the good things you hope will happen in 2011 by writing a news story or a letter to a loved one dated one year from now.
Ask everyone in the family what they think will happen – for themselves and other family members – and write up the results.
In the future, you can save these letters and re-read them on New Year’s Eve as a reminder of all you hoped would be.
Happy New Year!
