There are some who might suggest that a
calendar is the single most influential tool in the bucket of tools our
species has collected over time. Then if you ask someone to draw a
line of their own twelve month calendar, so that the line goes up for
contentment and down for discontentment, you will find that there are
people in this world who see the Januarys and Februarys of our northern
hemisphere as places of contentment.
Oddly enough I have a memory that I begin to think has got
to be either a false memory, or some sort of a dementia.
Sometime last summer, probably while bent double picking
Beans, and the struggle to get blood to stop pooling in my
head because I had spotted the soft fat child of a bean
Beetle, I think I remember visualizing the line of my
own calendar and seeing points of high contentment through
the months of January and February.
