Dear Members and Constituents,
Do you think of things as coming in cycles? Seasons, semesters, sunrises and sunsets. Finding patterns and extracting them to simplify our lives is a very human thing. And, while this approach has served our species well, there is a downside. By focusing on the common denominator we can sometimes lose sight of the uncommon numerator. When I hear people say it’s all been done before or, there’s nothing new under the sun, I feel they’re missing the point. The universe is expanding and time ceaselessly moves forward, so even if you’re watching a T.V. re-run, it’s a different you, in a different place, with a different set of environmental conditions. You may notice different things or find a previously elusive joke suddenly funny.
So too it is with donuts. We started the current rotation 59 weeks ago, and next week it will come to an end. I will be sending-out new calendar reminders for the new rotation. If there are dates that don’t work for you in the next year, I would encourage you to send me a note. I would also encourage you to savor the uncommon donuts brought to you this morning by Zach Przybeck. They look delicious.
