Winding Down

“Here we are, trapped in the amber of the moment. There is no why.”
― Kurt Vonnegut

The year winds down... and so do these covers. Before we pause to reflect on the year, let us pause and reflect on time, as seen in (and on) book covers.

"Time ripens the substance of a life as the seasons mellow and perfect its fruits. The best apples fall latest and keep longest."

--AMOS BRONSON ALCOTT, Table Talk
