Happy New Year!

Here's to 2010, with a quote I posted five years ago and which still seems good today:

'We are cast upon the future without reluctance and even without regret, as finding there the substance of desire.'

- Barrows Dunham, Man Against Myth.


No doubt to see the world new made and all the men and women made new in it. But then where are the old, familiar things, the faces that we know?

I don't see the quote as implying that, and I certainly don't think that way myself.
