Tricks of time
This was posted by a friend on Facebook today. Since a wonderful conversation with an ex-student last week (one of the greatest rewards of being a teacher), I've been trying to find words for my own gosh- GOSH-gosh! sense of our moment in history. I'm a few years younger than the Facebook friend, but old enough to have seen history end and start again, and to feel new historical vistas opening up, not all as happy as this one. If I don't write about it in the next weeks, remind me.
