Today is February 29.

Four years ago, I didn't know or care where I was. Where did I envision myself four years hence?

The world around me has improved significantly. I have learned more than I ever thought I could comprehend. I have found pieces of humanity, cherished them, watched some fade.

I need to keep all this in perspective. "Tomorrow" and "next month" are unbearably close. My life is counted in years, not weeks.
