A year is a really weird measurement of time.

makes perfect sense to me, don't know why we start it in the winter but of course it's useful to know when it'll start to get cold and everything always happens on the same day every year.. well it does now we're adding leap days.. months make sense as well, it's easier to work out when the 20th of april will be than the, what, 80th day of the year will be.. don't know why we use weeks tho, or centuries.. i like the hebrews' custom of having 7x7 year periods with every 7th year the year of rest when their soil's given a break from growing crops and the 50th is their jubilee that they mark the start and end of their lives with, roughly, and give the soil 2 years of rest that time, that's a meaningful way to measure time too, and good farming practice, especially for a dry area.. the lunar year's completely mad tho, don't know why anyone does it like that, every year things happen 10 or 11 days earlier than the last, doesn't help you predict anything

I agree with what you're saying, but I was meaning on more of an emotional level. Thinking of how things were or felt exactly a year ago, or how much things change in a year. It's just an odd way to look at things, everyone seems to look at life a year at a time, i don't know it was just a highdea :p

o right, yea, well we follow the same cycles as the earth don't we, you're out a lot more in the summer time, you do different things over the year annd you do the same things at the same time as previous years.. that's the case for me anyway
