October knew, of course, that the action of turning a page, of ending a chapter or of shutting a book, did not end a tale. Having admitted that, he would also avow that happy endings were never difficult to find: "It is simply a matter," he explained to April, "of finding a sunny place in a garden, where the light is golden and the grass is soft; somewhere to rest, to stop reading, and to be content.” [Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 4: Season of Mists]
Years end, new years BEgin, people meet, go away, and on we go unwrapping Life in great rips of paper, or at a slow pace, removing tape, gently, oh so gently…
A year ending means a new one will BEgin. And Life will go on. Or, NOT, depending on matters far BEyond my pay grade.
It is always important to know when something has reached its end. Closing circles, shutting doors, finishing chapters, it doesn't matter what we call it; what matters is to leave in the past those moments in life that are over. [Paulo Coelho, The Zahir]
Calendars help us know the ending and BEginnings. And clocks. And the sun and moon.
But sometimes we canNOT see the place where Now is Past and Now is Future.
It’s the Present.
I love you, Currie
