It is now officially 2016. I’m starting a pool on how long it takes me to write that instead of 2015. For some reason, 2015 was easy to remember – I don’t think I goofed and wrote 2014 until July, and I still can’t figure out what brain cell misfired to cause that. I didn’t jump ahead of myself to write 2016 until about two weeks into December.
I’m still trying to figure out why 1972 seemed like a lifetime, while 2015 passed in the blink of an eye. All in all, it wasn’t an awful year – despite the broken ankle and the eyeball-munching, glass-pooping, razorblade-skating beetles that invade my eyes in the middle of the night (every damned night)… Seriously, it’s been a pretty good year. Work has been good and challenging; I’ve enjoyed fun times with family and friends; we visited interesting places (like Lake Tahoe, which is apparently my Waterloo)… and now, the promise of 2016 lies ahead. Cairn said it best:
And The Doctor – the true expert on time:
People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but *actually* from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint – it’s more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly… time-y wimey… stuff.
Midnight and the Accidental New Year’s Eve Selfie
This is what happens when you look out the front window and try to take a photo of the kid shooting off fireworks right in front of your house – but forget to switch from the front to the back camera, and time it so perfectly that your face is lit up in the rockets’ red glare. That’s right – no lights, no flash, just New Year’s Eve fireworks in my neighborhood. That’s my pensive, “I’ll miss you, 2015…here’s hoping 2016 is equally awesome,” face. Or maybe I was thinking something else, but since my house isn’t on fire, we’ll just go with that.
