Reflection: When the Future Becomes the Present
In the first days of a new year, each of us are faced with a familiar yet unusual quandary: the future that we’ve dreamed into has suddenly become the present. It may not be what we expected it to be, it may even feel strange, even different from what we thought it might be.
And yet, the future is now the present.
Ultimately, it’s the most human of all experiences, when the future becomes the present, and discovering what feels unfamiliar, what is now new, and what we each need to rediscover.
