Happy New Year!  Another year has ended and a new one has begun.  My wife keeps telling me that the new year has come by so fast.  I keep telling her that it happens the same time every year.  My thought on why humans perceive time as going more quickly is when every experience is new time appears to move slower.  As we grow up the number of new experiences become fewer and fewer. As adults we have a job and our life settles into a routine.  It is the routine that creates the illusion that time is moving faster.

Happy New Year!  Here is to a year where we find news things to experience.
