Happy New Year, folks. It struck me this morning how some can get depressed about time’s linear pull, its inevitable tug and drag like a chain around our necks. But time is a circle, too. The seasons change, the hours revolve, the systems keep recycling, renewing. We recognize the shape of the years as they go round in the circle game. We literally have been here before, despite the irrevocable changes.
