Intermission: What a Wonderful World

by Wylie Overstreet

December 17, 2011

As 2011 fades to black, it's all too easy to look back and feel enervated. Our most recent circuit around the sun was composed of equal parts triumph, tragedy, and tumult; to consider it in its entirety is to need a very large, very stiff drink. And 2012, so long as the Mayans have it wrong, will likely be similar. 

Keep in mind that we are still here, though—and will continue to be. For all its chasmic faults and cavorts with the brink, the world is undeniably, irrepressibly, wonderful.
