in the rear view mirror

You look different from this angle, through the rear view mirror as the ‘2016 turns to ‘2017 and the memories are all that I have to see.

2016, you look different; different lines are showing now, different moments and revelations are showing their faces as I look back through the glass.

You weren’t easy to drive through, you gave me pot holes and unexpected turns and twists in the dark, but somehow looking back at you I can see the path driven clearer now.

The turns and hills more in focus. The lessons and adventures and friendships are like crisp mountain outlines and clear horizon lines, created to be noticed and appreciated as I turn my head around and see where I’ve come from.

Hindsight is a beautiful thing.
