To break a habit, establish a new rhythm—simple devices, long known to the ancients. It never failed. Break down the old pattern, the worn-out connections, and the spirit breaks loose, establishes new polarities, creates new tensions, bequeathes new vitality.

—Henry Miller
  American writer(1891-1980)

The Boston Globe‚Äôs editors and I agreed in December 2015 that Reflection for the Day will no longer appear in the newspaper, ending a 32-year run since the feature was launched by visionary Boston Globe editor Tom Winship. This website will continue to publish the Reflections every day, including most Sundays, into 2016. To my many regular print readers through the years I extend deep gratitude and warm wishes for the New Year. —Tom Fitzpatrick
