Significant times

We need times, spaces, objects, gestures, words to mark instances of significance. The depth of human life is made of these. Cultures are made of these. When they are allowed to sediment into pillars of cultural salt, they cease to mean what they should and become a nuisance.

Happy Christmas to all!
