We Remember Them: The Legacy of Pan Am Flight 103
Syracuse University Library Special Collections Research Center

Price: Free
Bird Library, 6th Floor
Syracuse University, Syracuse

The bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, on December 21, 1988 claimed the lives of 270 individuals from 21 nations. Among those lost were 35 students returning home from a semester abroad through Syracuse University. This exhibition of materials donated to the Pan Am Flight 103/Lockerbie Air Disaster by the victims' families, friends, advocates, and affected communities commemorates the 30th anniversary of the tragedy through an exploration of the ways in which the lives of the victims have been remembered. Whether through scholarship, public advocacy, art, or physical memorials, we ensure their lives and the lessons learned from their deaths are not forgotten.

Robert Benjamin: River Walking
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Light Work is pleased to present Robert Benjamin's "River Walking," a solo exhibition of photographs and poems spanning four decades. A self-taught photographer and poet, Benjamin's work, often centered around his family, offers a simple and honest consideration of what it means to live and to love with intention. "I think you have to love your life, and you have to have the courage to find the world beautiful," says Benjamin. Enchanted by color and the beauty of photography itself, Benjamin uncovers poetry in the everyday.

Benjamin never wanted a career in photography. He simply felt that he needed to make pictures. According to Benjamin, one of the great joys of being a photographer is working with cameras. He appreciates the elegance of mechanical objects deeply — their feel, their smell, their sound. Cameras are "exquisite little machines" — like typewriters, he says. Benjamin has been writing poems on his Smith-Corona Clipper longer than he's made photographs. His poems echo the sensitivity and humble directness of his photographs. More recently, Benjamin has begun pairing what he aptly calls "small photographs" with "small poems," a selection of which are included in this exhibition.

Strolling Down Salina Street: 1940-1980

So many Central New Yorkers have fond memories of coming to Syracuse and taking in the shops, the sights, and the sounds of Salina Street, the heart of Downtown. This exhibit re-creates Salina Street in our large first-floor gallery, using photographs and artifacts from the many shops, so that visitors to our downtown museum can "stroll" down the grand old street once again.

From Gilded to Gustav: The Victorian and Arts & Crafts Era in Onondaga County
Onondaga Historical Association

Price: Free
Onondaga Historical Association
321 Montgomery St., Syracuse

This Victorian Era and Arts & Crafts exhibit will highlight several of Syracuse's major contributors to the Arts and Crafts movement, 1900-1920s, as well as feature many fine examples of period clothing, architecture, and furniture of the Victorian Era in Syracuse, 1837-1901.

In many respects, the Arts and Crafts movement was a rebuke of the ornate styling, designs, and increasing mechanization of production in the Victorian period. The displays will allow for museum patrons to see these contrasting styles up close.

Eddie Dominguez: Garden of Eden
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The youngest of eight children, Eddie Dominguez grew up in Tucumcari, New Mexico, between Albuquerque and Amarillo on historic Route 66. He came to national prominence in the mid–1980s for highly stylized dinnerware sets that also stack into sculptural forms. In his work, Dominguez frequently references his home state's vegetation, landforms, weather, and Hispano–Catholic culture. The dual nature of Dominguez's objects, which inhabit the gray area between utility and art for art's sake, reflects his personal experience as a New Mexican who studied ceramics in the Anglo–dominated East: whether we see "art" or "craft," local Hispano or melting pot American depends completely on the immediate context.

Key Figures: Representational Ceramics 1932-1972
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Dating back to the Ceramic National exhibitions, which began in 1932, the Everson has a rich history of supporting artists who explore the figure. Artists like Viktor Schreckengost, Edris Eckhardt, and Waylande Gregory routinely received awards and critical acclaim for their work. "Key Figures" examines the larger-than-life artists who shaped an art movement, and features select works from a new generation of artists who are building on this legacy by using the figure to explore identity, narrative, and allegory.

Socially Gifted: 75 Years of Gifts from the Social Art Club
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Founded in 1875, the Social Art Club is a women's club dedicated to the study of art in a group setting. The Club has an extensive history of supporting the Everson, including financial support for the acquisition of some of the Museum's most iconic pieces, such as Adrian Saxe's Untitled vessel from 1980, which graces the cover of the Museum's American Ceramics catalog. Over the past decade, the Social Art Club's gifts have strengthened the Everson's connections to Central New York through donations of work by indigenous and regional artists.

Time Returns: A Continuous Now
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Time Returns: A Continuous Now" presents a cross section of photographs that span the early 20th century through 2019. In our current moment of peaked social activism and political engagement, the exhibition suggests new connections among seemingly disparate topics such as the horrors of war, the impact of the Anthropocene, shifting identities, and the necessity of intimacy. "Time Returns: A Continuous Now" features work rife with immediacy by artists living through tumultuous times that reevaluate societal divisions and reinforce the relevance and power of photography today. Co-curated by artist Judy Natal and the Everson's Curator of Art & Programs DJ Hellerman, the exhibition is assembled from the collections of the Everson Museum and Light Work.

About-Face: 50 years after Stonewall. The Paintings of Joe Radoccia
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

The oversized portraits in this exhibition represent the hard-won freedom to be present, to be as out and visible and large as desired. The scale acknowledges the magnitude of the About-Face in attitudes and acceptance that has unfolded in the 50 years since Stonewall. They claim space in an open environment that did not exist when we were born, that did not exist for most of our lives, and that many of us thought we would never live to experience.

This exhibit is intended as an invitation to enter an intimate conversation with LGBTQ elders, with a few younger voices. And to pause, for a visual musing on the passing of time and our unfolding changes.

Tig
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

"Good evening. Hello. I have cancer." Comedian Tig Notaro used those words to open her stand-up set at Largo in Los Angeles in August 2012. The performance made her a viral sensation. This documentary focuses on the year that followed that night. Notaro performs at clubs across the country while dealing with a new relationship with the actress Stephanie Allynne, trying to have a child, and coping with the passing of her mother.

Tig was produced by Michael Clark and Alex Turtletaub from Beachside Films, written by Jennifer Arnold and directed by Kristina Goolsby and Ashley York. Executive producers are Tig Notaro, Leah Holzer, Hunter Seidman and Tim Foley.

2016 Nominee for "Outstanding Documentary" from the GLAAD Media Awards

Syracuse Stage
Jason Alexander, director

Archbold Theater, Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

Jason Alexander (TV's Seinfeld, Tony Award Jerome Robbins' Broadway) directs The Last Five Years, Jason Robert Brown's emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two young New Yorkers who fall in and out of love. Cathy is an aspiring musical theatre performer, Jamie a novelist whose star is on the rise. He tells their story from the beginning, she from the end. With beautiful music and alternately humorous and heartfelt lyrics, The Last Five Years is a sincere and unflinching expression of love gained and lost. The Last Five Years has been performed around the country and around the world and enjoyed an Off-Broadway revival at Second Stage in 2013 and a film adaptation in 2014, starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan.

Immigration Dialogue
Building Company Theater

Price: $10
SALTspace Performance Center
103 Wyoming St., Syracuse

Immigration Dialogue, a new play by Building Company Theater, began as a response to President Obama's Farewell Address, in which he said of existing threats to democracy:

"And increasingly, we become so secure in our bubbles that we accept only information, whether true or not, that fits our opinions, instead of basing our opinions on the evidence that's out there ... Ultimately, that's what our democracy demands. It needs you ... If you're tired of arguing with strangers on the Internet, try to talk with one in real life."

At the center of Immigration Dialogue stands a series of intertwining perspectives on immigration gathered through conversations with a variety of people from different Central New York communities. It is an original ensemble-based work that uses a combination of theatrical styles to knit together into colorful incoherence, the myriad of kaleidoscopic perspectives currently driving the national debate on immigration — and on what it means to be an American.

Robert Benjamin: River Walking
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Light Work is pleased to present Robert Benjamin's "River Walking," a solo exhibition of photographs and poems spanning four decades. A self-taught photographer and poet, Benjamin's work, often centered around his family, offers a simple and honest consideration of what it means to live and to love with intention. "I think you have to love your life, and you have to have the courage to find the world beautiful," says Benjamin. Enchanted by color and the beauty of photography itself, Benjamin uncovers poetry in the everyday.

Benjamin never wanted a career in photography. He simply felt that he needed to make pictures. According to Benjamin, one of the great joys of being a photographer is working with cameras. He appreciates the elegance of mechanical objects deeply — their feel, their smell, their sound. Cameras are "exquisite little machines" — like typewriters, he says. Benjamin has been writing poems on his Smith-Corona Clipper longer than he's made photographs. His poems echo the sensitivity and humble directness of his photographs. More recently, Benjamin has begun pairing what he aptly calls "small photographs" with "small poems," a selection of which are included in this exhibition.

This Victorian Era and Arts & Crafts exhibit will highlight several of Syracuse's major contributors to the Arts and Crafts movement, 1900-1920s, as well as feature many fine examples of period clothing, architecture, and furniture of the Victorian Era in Syracuse, 1837-1901.

Eddie Dominguez: Garden of Eden
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The youngest of eight children, Eddie Dominguez grew up in Tucumcari, New Mexico, between Albuquerque and Amarillo on historic Route 66. He came to national prominence in the mid–1980s for highly stylized dinnerware sets that also stack into sculptural forms. In his work, Dominguez frequently references his home state's vegetation, landforms, weather, and Hispano–Catholic culture. The dual nature of Dominguez's objects, which inhabit the gray area between utility and art for art's sake, reflects his personal experience as a New Mexican who studied ceramics in the Anglo–dominated East: whether we see "art" or "craft," local Hispano or melting pot American depends completely on the immediate context.

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

The oversized portraits in this exhibition represent the hard-won freedom to be present, to be as out and visible and large as desired. The scale acknowledges the magnitude of the About-Face in attitudes and acceptance that has unfolded in the 50 years since Stonewall. They claim space in an open environment that did not exist when we were born, that did not exist for most of our lives, and that many of us thought we would never live to experience.

This exhibit is intended as an invitation to enter an intimate conversation with LGBTQ elders, with a few younger voices. And to pause, for a visual musing on the passing of time and our unfolding changes.

Immigration Dialogue
Building Company Theater

Price: $10
SALTspace Performance Center
103 Wyoming St., Syracuse

Immigration Dialogue, a new play by Building Company Theater, began as a response to President Obama's Farewell Address, in which he said of existing threats to democracy:

"And increasingly, we become so secure in our bubbles that we accept only information, whether true or not, that fits our opinions, instead of basing our opinions on the evidence that's out there ... Ultimately, that's what our democracy demands. It needs you ... If you're tired of arguing with strangers on the Internet, try to talk with one in real life."

At the center of Immigration Dialogue stands a series of intertwining perspectives on immigration gathered through conversations with a variety of people from different Central New York communities. It is an original ensemble-based work that uses a combination of theatrical styles to knit together into colorful incoherence, the myriad of kaleidoscopic perspectives currently driving the national debate on immigration — and on what it means to be an American.

At a large, tastefully-appointed Sneden's Landing townhouse, the Deputy Mayor of New York has just shot himself. Though only a flesh wound, four couples are about to experience a severe attack of farce. Gathering for their tenth wedding anniversary, the host lies bleeding in the other room, and his wife is nowhere in sight. His lawyer, Ken, and wife, Chris, must get "the story" straight before the other guests arrive. As the confusions and miscommunications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.

Price: $10 in advance, $15 at the door if available
Listening Room at 443
443 Burnet Ave., Syracuse

Join us for an evening of New Orleans-style music, food and cocktails with the inimitable Davis Rogan! We'll be sampling classic Sazerac cocktails and Rogan's very own super-secret gumbo recipe. Absinthe flavored antics and convivial shenanigans all but guaranteed, so let's pass a good time, shall we?

Davis Rogan draws his musical inspiration from Professor Longhair and Fats Domino, as does every New Orleans Rhythm and Blues piano player. What separates Davis is his lyrics. The wit, irony and self-deprecation echo Randy Newman, but the wry observations about life, humanity and New Orleans are uniquely his.

This combination of roots music and sharp lyrics heard in the 2005 release, The Once and Future DJ, drew auteur David Simon to Davis as David prepared his HBO series about New Orleans, Treme. Davis began working as a consultant and over six years and four seasons of the show, served as an actor, a scriptwriter, a piano coach, a songwriter and the muse for the character Davis McAlary. By the series' end, Davis had written or placed more music in the show than any other musician.

Richard III
Syracuse Shakespeare Festival
Mike King, director

Price: Free (donations accepted)
Thornden Park Amphitheater
Ostrom Ave., Syracuse

Richard III is considered the first of Shakespeare's great dramas. Shakespeare used multiple sources to create one of his most evil characters who certainly ordered the death of a king but may not have been quite as maleficent in real life as he is portrayed in the play. The question of the extent of his "deformity" is also widely debated. What do you think? Was he the hunchbacked monster with a shriveled arm or was he slightly to moderately stooped which made his arm appear shriveled? With the backdrop of the War of the Roses, the play centers on Richard's seizure of power in 1483, his short reign as king and his violent end on the battlefield searching madly for his horse.

$25 premium tickets include a front-row lawn chair seat, $10 of food of your choice from Beer Belly Deli, and Gannon's Isle ice cream at intermission.

Korrie Taylor, director

CNY Playhouse
Shoppingtown Mall, Entrance No. 4 (adjacent to parking garage), Dewitt

At a large, tastefully-appointed Sneden's Landing townhouse, the Deputy Mayor of New York has just shot himself. Though only a flesh wound, four couples are about to experience a severe attack of farce. Gathering for their tenth wedding anniversary, the host lies bleeding in the other room, and his wife is nowhere in sight. His lawyer, Ken, and wife, Chris, must get "the story" straight before the other guests arrive. As the confusions and miscommunications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.

Eddie Dominguez: Garden of Eden
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The youngest of eight children, Eddie Dominguez grew up in Tucumcari, New Mexico, between Albuquerque and Amarillo on historic Route 66. He came to national prominence in the mid–1980s for highly stylized dinnerware sets that also stack into sculptural forms. In his work, Dominguez frequently references his home state's vegetation, landforms, weather, and Hispano–Catholic culture. The dual nature of Dominguez's objects, which inhabit the gray area between utility and art for art's sake, reflects his personal experience as a New Mexican who studied ceramics in the Anglo–dominated East: whether we see "art" or "craft," local Hispano or melting pot American depends completely on the immediate context.

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery

The oversized portraits in this exhibition represent the hard-won freedom to be present, to be as out and visible and large as desired. The scale acknowledges the magnitude of the About-Face in attitudes and acceptance that has unfolded in the 50 years since Stonewall. They claim space in an open environment that did not exist when we were born, that did not exist for most of our lives, and that many of us thought we would never live to experience.

This exhibit is intended as an invitation to enter an intimate conversation with LGBTQ elders, with a few younger voices. And to pause, for a visual musing on the passing of time and our unfolding changes.

Robert Benjamin: River Walking
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Light Work is pleased to present Robert Benjamin's "River Walking," a solo exhibition of photographs and poems spanning four decades. A self-taught photographer and poet, Benjamin's work, often centered around his family, offers a simple and honest consideration of what it means to live and to love with intention. "I think you have to love your life, and you have to have the courage to find the world beautiful," says Benjamin. Enchanted by color and the beauty of photography itself, Benjamin uncovers poetry in the everyday.

Benjamin never wanted a career in photography. He simply felt that he needed to make pictures. According to Benjamin, one of the great joys of being a photographer is working with cameras. He appreciates the elegance of mechanical objects deeply — their feel, their smell, their sound. Cameras are "exquisite little machines" — like typewriters, he says. Benjamin has been writing poems on his Smith-Corona Clipper longer than he's made photographs. His poems echo the sensitivity and humble directness of his photographs. More recently, Benjamin has begun pairing what he aptly calls "small photographs" with "small poems," a selection of which are included in this exhibition.

He went on to study with Jimmy Atkins (Chet's brother) which led to a touring career with his family band from Nashville to Las Vegas. Since settling down in Central New York, he has been in constant demand as a studio musician.

Loren's finely-honed songwriting skills have launched his melodies on NBC's #1 rated show "ER", "The Young and The Restless" and on a Christmas CD with BB King and Patti Labelle. He has performed with some of the best acoustic players in the world including Stephen Bennett, Richard Smith, John Knowles, Muriel Anderson and Loren's friend and mentor Tommy Emmanuel, the Australian guitar sensation.

Immigration Dialogue
Building Company Theater

Price: $10
SALTspace Performance Center
103 Wyoming St., Syracuse

Immigration Dialogue, a new play by Building Company Theater, began as a response to President Obama's Farewell Address, in which he said of existing threats to democracy:

"And increasingly, we become so secure in our bubbles that we accept only information, whether true or not, that fits our opinions, instead of basing our opinions on the evidence that's out there ... Ultimately, that's what our democracy demands. It needs you ... If you're tired of arguing with strangers on the Internet, try to talk with one in real life."

At the center of Immigration Dialogue stands a series of intertwining perspectives on immigration gathered through conversations with a variety of people from different Central New York communities. It is an original ensemble-based work that uses a combination of theatrical styles to knit together into colorful incoherence, the myriad of kaleidoscopic perspectives currently driving the national debate on immigration — and on what it means to be an American.

Richard III
Syracuse Shakespeare Festival
Mike King, director

Price: Free (donations accepted)
Thornden Park Amphitheater
Ostrom Ave., Syracuse

Richard III is considered the first of Shakespeare's great dramas. Shakespeare used multiple sources to create one of his most evil characters who certainly ordered the death of a king but may not have been quite as maleficent in real life as he is portrayed in the play. The question of the extent of his "deformity" is also widely debated. What do you think? Was he the hunchbacked monster with a shriveled arm or was he slightly to moderately stooped which made his arm appear shriveled? With the backdrop of the War of the Roses, the play centers on Richard's seizure of power in 1483, his short reign as king and his violent end on the battlefield searching madly for his horse.

$25 premium tickets include a front-row lawn chair seat, $10 of food of your choice from Beer Belly Deli, and Gannon's Isle ice cream at intermission.

In his work, Dominguez frequently references his home state's vegetation, landforms, weather, and Hispano–Catholic culture. The dual nature of Dominguez's objects, which inhabit the gray area between utility and art for art's sake, reflects his personal experience as a New Mexican who studied ceramics in the Anglo–dominated East: whether we see "art" or "craft," local Hispano or melting pot American depends completely on the immediate context.

Robert Benjamin: River Walking
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Light Work is pleased to present Robert Benjamin's "River Walking," a solo exhibition of photographs and poems spanning four decades. A self-taught photographer and poet, Benjamin's work, often centered around his family, offers a simple and honest consideration of what it means to live and to love with intention. "I think you have to love your life, and you have to have the courage to find the world beautiful," says Benjamin. Enchanted by color and the beauty of photography itself, Benjamin uncovers poetry in the everyday.

Benjamin never wanted a career in photography. He simply felt that he needed to make pictures. According to Benjamin, one of the great joys of being a photographer is working with cameras. He appreciates the elegance of mechanical objects deeply — their feel, their smell, their sound. Cameras are "exquisite little machines" — like typewriters, he says. Benjamin has been writing poems on his Smith-Corona Clipper longer than he's made photographs. His poems echo the sensitivity and humble directness of his photographs. More recently, Benjamin has begun pairing what he aptly calls "small photographs" with "small poems," a selection of which are included in this exhibition.

Immigration Dialogue
Building Company Theater

Price: $10
SALTspace Performance Center
103 Wyoming St., Syracuse

Immigration Dialogue, a new play by Building Company Theater, began as a response to President Obama's Farewell Address, in which he said of existing threats to democracy:

"And increasingly, we become so secure in our bubbles that we accept only information, whether true or not, that fits our opinions, instead of basing our opinions on the evidence that's out there ... Ultimately, that's what our democracy demands. It needs you ... If you're tired of arguing with strangers on the Internet, try to talk with one in real life."

At the center of Immigration Dialogue stands a series of intertwining perspectives on immigration gathered through conversations with a variety of people from different Central New York communities. It is an original ensemble-based work that uses a combination of theatrical styles to knit together into colorful incoherence, the myriad of kaleidoscopic perspectives currently driving the national debate on immigration — and on what it means to be an American.

Rumors
Central New York Playhouse
Korrie Taylor, director

CNY Playhouse
Shoppingtown Mall, Entrance No. 4 (adjacent to parking garage), Dewitt

At a large, tastefully-appointed Sneden's Landing townhouse, the Deputy Mayor of New York has just shot himself. Though only a flesh wound, four couples are about to experience a severe attack of farce. Gathering for their tenth wedding anniversary, the host lies bleeding in the other room, and his wife is nowhere in sight. His lawyer, Ken, and wife, Chris, must get "the story" straight before the other guests arrive. As the confusions and miscommunications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.

Richard III
Syracuse Shakespeare Festival
Mike King, director

Price: Free (donations accepted)
Thornden Park Amphitheater
Ostrom Ave., Syracuse

Richard III is considered the first of Shakespeare's great dramas. Shakespeare used multiple sources to create one of his most evil characters who certainly ordered the death of a king but may not have been quite as maleficent in real life as he is portrayed in the play. The question of the extent of his "deformity" is also widely debated. What do you think? Was he the hunchbacked monster with a shriveled arm or was he slightly to moderately stooped which made his arm appear shriveled? With the backdrop of the War of the Roses, the play centers on Richard's seizure of power in 1483, his short reign as king and his violent end on the battlefield searching madly for his horse.

$25 premium tickets include a front-row lawn chair seat, $10 of food of your choice from Beer Belly Deli, and Gannon's Isle ice cream at intermission.

The Last Five Years
Syracuse Stage
Jason Alexander, director

Archbold Theater, Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

Jason Alexander (TV's Seinfeld, Tony Award Jerome Robbins' Broadway) directs The Last Five Years, Jason Robert Brown's emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two young New Yorkers who fall in and out of love. Cathy is an aspiring musical theatre performer, Jamie a novelist whose star is on the rise. He tells their story from the beginning, she from the end. With beautiful music and alternately humorous and heartfelt lyrics, The Last Five Years is a sincere and unflinching expression of love gained and lost. The Last Five Years has been performed around the country and around the world and enjoyed an Off-Broadway revival at Second Stage in 2013 and a film adaptation in 2014, starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan.

"Time Returns: A Continuous Now" presents a cross section of photographs that span the early 20th century through 2019.

"Time Returns: A Continuous Now" features work rife with immediacy by artists living through tumultuous times that reevaluate societal divisions and reinforce the relevance and power of photography today. Co-curated by artist Judy Natal and the Everson's Curator of Art & Programs DJ Hellerman, the exhibition is assembled from the collections of the Everson Museum and Light Work.

About-Face: 50 years after Stonewall. The Paintings of Joe Radoccia
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

The oversized portraits in this exhibition represent the hard-won freedom to be present, to be as out and visible and large as desired. The scale acknowledges the magnitude of the About-Face in attitudes and acceptance that has unfolded in the 50 years since Stonewall. They claim space in an open environment that did not exist when we were born, that did not exist for most of our lives, and that many of us thought we would never live to experience.

This exhibit is intended as an invitation to enter an intimate conversation with LGBTQ elders, with a few younger voices. And to pause, for a visual musing on the passing of time and our unfolding changes.
