December is a weird month. This particular one has been even weirder than normal, busier than normal. All parts of my life have been turned upside-down and inside-out in the last couple of weeks. Most things have fallen back into place. Some are left to be fully unpacked in the new year.

It’s increasingly strange to me how tied we as humans are to the concept of years. One ends, a new one starts. Before you know it we’re onto the next. December 31st and January 1st are directly connected, yet feel like two completely different worlds.
