__ New Year

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die... A time to weep, and a time to dance... ~King Solomon/Ecclesiastes 3
It's hard to fill in the blanks this year. I was at the Esplanade last night and the contrast was evident. Party goers with party hats, horns, and confetti-expelling cans turned up by the thousands. 600 miles from where I am, 80,000 Indonesians are dead, many more elsewhere. Millions are displaced. It's difficult to make sense of things. Hope the new year will be better for everyone... Corrinne May was great, I guess if she didn't exist, someone would surely put together the frequencies and invent the same voice, it's really quite special. I'm going again tonight... More information about help needed in the disaster can be found here.
