Old, New

Tradition exists for good reasons. It’s reliable, hefty, comfortable, and symbolic. Think of Christmas, tooth fairies, mid-autumn festivals, the happy birthday song. Yet even tradition has its roots, and those roots come from change: tradition rises from the ashes of modernization.

So, when something new bobs along the river, don’t be quick to dismiss it. Perhaps it’s a farce, perhaps it’s useless drivel, but there’s also a chance that it’s quietly subversive. Even if it’s a makeshift and modest thing.
