Happy 2016 … plus Scratch Circles and the Sands of Time

The Sands of Time

The Sands of Time, photo by David Marvin

The Wheel of Time has rolled into another year. It might be my increasing age talking, but it seems as if the world has gotten harder over the last couple of decades. I hope that 2016 treats everyone more kindly, including you!

Apparently I can’t even post a simple metaphor without learning something new. David writes:

Scratch Circles or “Scharrkreise” form when plant matter is blown around by the wind, etching circular designs in the sand.

If you want to get all geeky on sand circles, scratch circles & Scharrkreise – a term coined by R. Richter in 1926 – those links are just the thing for you!
