You don’t always find new things in the places you expect.
They often just turn up unannounced, surprising us and sometimes throwing us off balance. However, they always help change our perspective and, in the end they change our lives as well. As Albert Camus wrote in Summer (1954):
“In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.”
I would like to wish a very Happy New Year to all those who share in our experience and to those we are going to meet.
