MIDNIGHT IN THE HOT TUB-GREETING THE NEW YEAR
Tonight’s the night for our yearly ritual. We soak in the tub with a glass of bubbly and celebrate our good fortune. We can hear the bells & horns and see tips of fireworks across the lake from our rooftop Hot Spring Spa. Safe, warm and away from the traffic, it’s just the two of us. We toast the year to come and wish for another year of health and happiness, continued good fortune, a great business, family & friends. Here’s to all of you hot tubbers who are doing the same tonight: Happy New Year! May all of your wishes come true.
This is the Dream.
This is the Dream we carry through the world
that something fantastic will happen
that it has to happen
that time will open by itself
that doors shall open by themselves
that the heart will find itself open
that mountain springs will rise up
that the dream will open itself
that we will one early morning
slip into a harbor
we have never know before.
Thanks to Robert Bly for this translation of the poem from the late Norwegian poet Olav Hauge.
That sums up my feeling about the hot tub: dreams are dreampt and feelings felt and explored like no where else on earth. We wouldn’t be without our dream machine!
Happy New Year! From all of us at Olympic Hot Tub.
RES EST SERVAS VOLUPTAS. Pleasure is Serious Business.
