This one makes a lot of sense for the start of the year- or perhaps even more important at the END of a year. That way we won't lose sight of what is important in between.
Decline starts with the replacement of dreams with memories and ends with the replacement of memories with other memories.(It makes me wonder- as individuals, communities, nations- do we ever reach a point where dreams are no longer important? So far I haven't found such a point.)
