Yesterday a bloggerfriend mentioned the passing of yet another decade and it hit me! We've just experienced the 0s and now we're into the 11s. Just doesn't have the same ring, the same impact, does it? It seems the first 19 years of each century are nebulous and without a clear name. Do we have to wait until 2020 to ameliorate this tragic condition?
I think part of the reason I'm having trouble even recognizing the past 10 years as a decade is because we haven't 'characterized' them --there's no clear name. (Well, actually there's probably more to that -- I still can't get used to being in this new century and yet when I say '1970' it seems to me like ancient times, but this is my problem.)
So where do we go from here? Any ideas?
