As one year draws to a close and another approaches, one thing I like to consider is—well—the coming year. I’ve mentioned here before the fact that “magazine time” runs at least three months in the future, and that we’re constantly looking ahead to what is coming next (or after next, more accurately). And when one does that, suddenly spring of 2014 does not seem that far away, which I think is a very nice thought, don’t you?
