Happy New Year! Happy Thresholds!

And Happy January! This month is named after Janus, the Roman god of thresholds, and thus, of transitions. He had two faces, one that could see the past and the other that could see the future. So in going from one year to another, as we celebrate the New Year, it has been customary to both look back and look ahead. In the buildup to New Year’s Day on this blog, we have been looking back. Now let’s look ahead.
