From the desk of the Executive Director

Laura Kephart

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and days of auld lang syne?
For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne."
- Robert Burns, Auld Lang Syne

My father’s family was from Scotland, and we grew up with the fabulous works of Robert Louis Stevenson, Sir Waler Scott, …and of course Robert (Rabbie) Burns. The song “Auld Lang Syne is traditionally sung on New Year’s Eve (or Hogmanay in Scotland). The meaning of the phrase translated to English comes to be “old long since”..but we can think of it as “days gone by”. The tune had been around since the 16th century before Mr. Burns put pen to paper, and to this day we sing it in remembrance of times gone by, while drinking a cup of kindness with friends (or a “wee dram” as our father called it..).

With the upcoming holidays, and the New Year (which we are all looking forward to!), we remember with fondness times past, as we look forward and prepare for the coming year. Charles Lamb once said “New Year’s Day is everyone’s birthday”. What a great thought! Thinking of the new year as a new beginning, full of new opportunities and experiences…what a joyful concept!

On behalf of all of us here at San Clemente Villas by the Sea…our warmest wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous new year for each of you and your families.

Best Wishes,
Laura Kephart, Executive Director
