I was nearly certain I had already posted the habit of naming the year, and possibly a list of the names of the years gone by. Apparently not.
Monday night, we said goodbye to the Year of the Delta, so named in theory because it was a year of much change and the new things that can grow in the fertile soil of the mouth of a river. Tink got pregnant with baby number two, so it seems appropriate.
2008 is the year of the Untouchables. The implications of that can splinter out in a number of directions, but the gist seems to be that we’ve been through the change and now its time to evaluate how the things that change nudge up against the things that don’t – the untouchable things.
We’ll see how that goes.
