THREE-HUNDRED-FIFTY-THREE. We are currently on Day 353 of the Year of our Lord, 2020.
In the past, I have spent a lot of time dwelling on the fact that the turning of the calendar doesn’t matter much. Maybe too much time.
One year bled into another and, unless you had something specific planned for the new year itself, there was no good reason to believe the next year would be better than the one that passed.
There was no good reason to believe it would be worse, either.
