I have been living through a year, not merely existing in an abstraction called time. The year has meant to me participation in a cycle, the awareness of an ebb and flow, of being part of a vital and complex process…. At this moment I am standing on the threshold of a new year waiting to begin a new cycle of months forever familiar and forever new. “Seasons return”… though sooner or late each of us must add, “but not for me.” Thus, Joseph Wood Krutch, twentieth-century American naturalist, ends his book The Twelve Seasons.
