Change is certain. Progress is not.
~ E. H. Carr (1892-1982), English historian, diplomat, journalist and international relations theorist, and "an opponent of empiricism within historiography"
And it's clear we don't have a whole lot of control over where & how change will come.
And it's clear that what looks like progress isn't necessarily, that there seem to be as many unintended consequences as there are intentional ones.
It's a great trip, though, & I'm happy to be along for the ride (even now).
