F. Scott Fitzgerald | and one fine morning--


"Gatsby believed in the greenlight, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter -- to-morrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther ... and one fine morning--

So we beat on boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past"

F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

* The month of January is named after the roman god Janus - patron of doorways and beginnings. He is usually depicted with two faces; one looking forward, and the other looking back. I've been thinking about that a lot in this first week of the new year.
