It’s that time of year again: December 31. New Year’s Eve. Reviewing and reliving the events of 2014 is, for all practical intents and purposes, unavoidable lest I choose to remove myself from all of mainstream or social media for the next week or so (which I do not).
Once upon a time I truly enjoyed year-end tributes and welcomed the opportunity to remember and reflect on people or plights that had captured our interest and captivated our conscience, whether fleetingly or for months on end … dates and faces and memories set to a carefully crafted soundtrack and beautifully scripted words, chock full of images shared by a community, nation or world.
But this year I do not relish the opportunity to relive or rehash. I am struggling too much with the present to grapple again with the past.
