We left Berlin around 4 AM. Still pitch dark. Shortly after take off, the sun rose and stayed like a hanging hand. Crossing time zones on a plane, time went on and yet stood still. Landing in Chicago, catching a coach to Madison. Finally travelling in human speed. Time didn’t wait. It caught up. Now the sun went down. The more snow we saw. What a countdown. Now it’s over. 2012 is the past, 2013 the future. Thanks to all of you who have taken the time to travel clockwise for a while. It was wonderful.
