Time passes. Time is determined and silent. It speaks through its actors who, apparently unaware, forge it, guide it, influence it and make it theirs. And they are always surprised when confronted with the power of time itself. One year has gone by, and we are ready to ring in the new one. The past is in the past, what is meant to happen will happen, so let's just appreciate this with wonder, with curiosity and let's grasp the infinite kindness of time which always offers us new opportunities, challenges, and moments in which to hold space or fill. It all depends on us. May it be a year guided by radical thoughts and gentle actions, solidarity before tolerance, justice before compassion. In other words... may there be balance between joy and pain, light and darkness, the good moments and the bad. Bun Ann Nü! Happy New Year!
