Rituals of Time.

Anniversaries/Birthdays are occasions to make time and consecrate the ritual marking and hence making life, a pause in this pandemic to say a mumbling prayer in the midst of a stillness which all of us have been mulled in to, a normal which has been forced upon us, a language deeply insufficient for our times. Metaphors are empty of valency, and meanings need to be refreshed, hence the residues of normalcy need to be celebrated with souls who care.
