thought for tuesday

' "oh spirits, merciful and good!  i know that our inheritance is held in store for us by Time.  i know there is a sea of Time to rise one day, before which all who wrong us or oppress us will be swept away like leaves.  i see it, on the flow!  i know that we must trust and hope, and neither doubt ourselves nor doubt the good in one another..." '

charles dickens, the chimes

"i know that we must trust and hope, and neither doubt ourselves nor doubt the good in one another..."

My God, we are so still in Dickens' era ... although this was probably an unscientific statement by me.

I sometimes wonder whether the Mayan prediction for Dec. 23, 2012 or thereabouts will hold true. We are supposed to metamorphose then.
