It seems as though the years have just whizzed by without me noticing. My grandchildren are in their teens; my mirror reflects this strange dumpy grey-haired woman and I can’t remember where the young brunette girl went (it seems she was here just the other day).
. . the research suggests that the brain has more control over its own perception of passing time than people may know. For example, many people have the defeated sense that it was just yesterday that they made last year’s resolutions; the year snapped shut, and they didn’t start writing that novel or attend even one Pilates class. But it is precisely because they didn’t act on their plan that the time seemed to have flown away.
At the beginning of 2010, I feel as though I squandered 2009.
The good thing: a fresh start now – in Twenty-Ten!
