New Year's Eve

I have an associative, free-flowing memory. Moments from decades past feel as current to me as a minute ago. The flip side of this is I can't recall offhand the highlights of a given year. I started a blog, after all, to get the highlights in writing.

I also tend to focus on the moment or task at hand. You won't hear me say I had a bad year, a bad week, or a bad day. Time unfolds constantly. We have a choice in how and what we remember, the narrative we give the past.

I will only say I'm lucky to have had the time. I wish you all the same luck.
