New Year

There are just two hours remaining of 2013 (depending, of course, on where in the world you may happen to be), but, however one looks at it, it is not a lot of time to get done all those things that probably should have been done this year. Next year will be different. That said, time is quite insignificant - something that someone at some point devised simply to impose order on things that probably cannot be ordered. New year, with all its promises, could happen, for example, on the 17th March or the 25th November, and there is absolutely nothing stopping the change from old to new occurring at 9.35 am or at 17.38.pm. Every moment is part of every other moment, and what has been is yet to come and that which we believe belongs to something called the future is already part of us. Our only option is to live in the moment.
Happy 2014.
