Cyclical time at Hallingtunet

June 7, 2017

We think we are getting less and less time, and feel more and more need to arrange the little time we have.

A record calendar has a spring page and an autumn page; on June 30, we turn the calendar over, and when the year is over, we throw it away: the year is over, we are done with it, and it will never come again.
