Where has the year gone?
NOV. 23, 2011
Columnist Barbara Morgan reflected on how fast time flies by in a year.
“I remember last New Year’s spent with friends as if it were yesterday, but I can’t manage to fill in the blanks since then,” she said then. This feeling might be among many as Thanksgiving rolls around and Christmas not too long after that. “While over time our brains become less and less reliable for memory — thank goodness for post-its — our older brains develop an amazing ability to appreciate the meaning of time,” Morgan said.
The little moments are what make the holidays special, appreciating the time you have instead of wondering where the time has gone.
