The ancient Greeks, apparently, had a different view of time to us. Where we feel that the future stretches out in front of us, the past left behind, they viewed the past as being in front of them, the future rushing up from behind. And in many ways, I guess that makes sense: we can't see the future, only the past – more recent events more clearly than those that happened long ago. As for why I'm mentioning this, I'm 43 today, and while I'm not of an age where it seems like quite the event it did when I was younger, it is a day when I pause for thought and look back. And I guess, on the whole, things have been pretty good :-)
