Wow! 2004 is here already. Have you noticed that the older you get, the faster time seems to move? I remember thinking a week was an eternity when I was a little child. Then, in high school, if someone said, “Get that to me a week from now,” I would think, “A week should be plenty of time.” Now, if I have a week to get something done, I feel much more pressured. Time is much more fleeting to me now. I think about the concept of time a lot when I hear my 4 year old say “We did that last year,” when she means “yesterday.” I am also reminded of it when I see my 7-year-old beginning to have a better understanding of how long periods of time really are.
Regardless of how quickly 2003 passed for you, I wish you the best in 2004. Happy New Year!
