Pressed for time

You can press the old year between the pages of a book, but alas the new chapter always writes itself.

Memories old & new

There are those who try to bottle the old year for safekeeping but at midnight the cork always pops.

“But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do, once you find them...”
Jim Croce, “Time in a Bottle,” c.1970
