Tipping point

"Sailors drink to 'friends astern' until half way over the sea, and then drink to 'friends ahead'." (--attributed to William Wilberforce by S. G. Green)

Another day older, an old year behind and a new year ahead makes me friendly with and understanding of Wilberforce's statement. As we go ahead with faces forward, we eventually reach a "tipping point" when there are more we know across on the distance shore to which we're sailing than those who are behind.
