Welcome News Viewers to the last week of 2022 on Friday’s Free Chat. We get to say “see ya next year” while thinking of the past, future and present in the same moment. Time crunch, that’s what we call this time of the year, the short period of distillation, it’s 2022 but it’s not; it’s 2023 but almost, it’s an interval during which we both reflect and anticipate while noting it feels awfully familiar here; it feels like it did last year or the year before when we did the same thing.
Posted below is one of the comics run here on Free Chat each month of last year. We ran several comics every Friday for the past year — 52 weeks worth — these are just a representative few. They beg the question — do the same issues seem to repeat year after year? Time Crunch. Past, present and future, all real for us today, December 30, 2022.
This is Friday Free Chat — what’s happening in your world as we see 2022 come to an end?
