Where has the year gone?

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.
