Another year is about to end and once again I ask where did the time go? Last January seems so close, not a distant 12 months in the past. I suspect the same will happen with 2009. It will start with big plans for change and end before we are ready. Something is happening to our world. I think time is speeding up. I can remember the good old days when a year was really a year. It was chock full of 12 full months. Not like today. Today the months are all smeared and run together in a streaking way. They zoom by to end in December with the same unanswered question. Where did the year go?
