What does one do when hibernating in one's den? Well, I know that a lot of people play Monopoly and other such "raucous" games, as evidenced by the Instagram tag, #Monopoly. We, ourselves, played a few intense games and I came away winning once and being totally crushed another time! We played for hours at a time. I found it surprising how similar Monopoly is to real life One or two sequences of bad luck and your world can come crashing down. But if you can just hang on and try every avenue to outlast the Minion of Misfortune, your luck can suddenly turn around and it's smooth sailing until the next series of unfortunate events. (Speaking of avenues, Baltic Avenue is a really cheap property. But with a hotel on it, you can get $450 a pop!) Real life's ebbs and flows last more than several hours, however. Sometimes it is hard to be positive that things will get better and hard to foresee so far into the future! I suppose that is why the New Year has so much value. We can "resolve" to be more positive in our outlook and press forward in life, until it's our turn to land in Free Parking!
