Numbers are funny things, and I suppose I've always been partial to leap years, particularly because they are divisible by four. Superstition has attached itself with both numbers and calendars, so even though I think it is ridiculous, 2012 is a "better year" than 2013, merely by the "likability" of the number.

This is not to say that 2013 comes in without its share of trouble and trepidation. Around the world, many people are already dreading what 2013 may have in store, be it tyranny or war or disaster or disease. 2013 will undoubtedly have much of this.

And yet, the calendar is still a construct, used to organize and record what goes on in man's days. The sun goes up and the sun goes down, unaware of what markings are used to keep track. Waking up thing morning in 2013 is not much different than a day ago in 2012, at least for most, and as people, we've aged a day between the old year and the new.

For many, though, the battle lines have already been drawn, and whether 2013 is a year in which the powder kegs explode remains to be seen.
