Trust Falling...Into a Pile of Glass

We're 7 days into 2021 and...what is happening.

Of course, we all knew that the problems, global and national, wouldn't end just because the year changed. We all know that, as rational human beings. We know that when the clock hits midnight on December 31st, nothing is REALLY changing, but it's nice to mark the passage of time, and it's human nature to take any chance at all to wish for better, brighter days. We want them NOW. We want to be able to peek at the future and say, "Wow, it's better! My problems, the country's problems, the world's problems are all doing a lot better! Somehow, I can count on something coming along to save me in the future. I can stop worrying now, because I know that things turn out okay."
