There once was a before to 2015 and now there’s an after.
I took a step forward and the horizon changed; I took another and it changed again.
Really, I know I am still a before person moving towards a better after.
Here I am, at the before to 2016 and I’m imagining what my preferred after will be.
I back at the beginning again, as T. S. Eliot has helped me to see:
“We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.”
No one is just a before person; everyone can be an after person, too.
And maybe we can be helpers of one another to move from before to after.
