Arbitrarily Marking The Passage Of Time

What better time of year than this time of year to take stock, make plans, and get a new calendar. If I was a better person, I would list 2,017 things, or even just write 2,017 words in this post, but I’m not a better person. I could even break down that number and do 2, 20, 1, 201, or 17 things. Each of those numbers has its problems though. 1 and 2 things in a list is too short, while 20 and 17 things is too long, and 201 things is a book, not a blog.

So I will do 7.

It is 12,336 hours since I made my first wooden bowl.

It is four seconds since I had a sip of coffee.

And it is 2,017 years since Jesus did his first poo.
