1/6- Time Show

“Years turn like autumn leaves. They pass and we number them like galaxies or symphonies when we should honor them with names  like hurricanes or the craters of the moon.  What will arcturus ever mean to me compared to these years: 1962, 1886, 2005. They march beside me like siblings,  they are more intimate than lovers, they do not turn back when I fall behind.”
