IS TIME MOVING FASTER OR AM I JUST BECOMING MORE AWARE OF HOW SHORT A YEAR REALLY IS BECAUSE CHRIST ITS ALREADY JULY
Your years are getting shorter proportionally to your life. Every day, you’ve been alive more than you were a year before.
A year for a 1 year old is their WHOLE LIFE and a year for a 5 year old is 1/5th of their life. Your fractions just keep getting smaller, making your years seem shorter.

Top: Norman Rockwell, Boy Graduate, oil on canvas, 74.5 x 36”, 1959.
Bottom: JC Leyendecker, June Graduate, oil on canvas, 24.5 x 20”, 1920.
Love how clearly the very different attitudes of the two artists come through when you have almost exactly the same subject (and even model!) depicted.
I could not, off the top of my head and with a very cursory internet search, find an exact analogue for the textless crest in the Leyendecker. It seems awfully familiar though, doesn’t it? I wonder if it’s something obvious that I’m missing, or if he just made it up.
Love the contrasting styles here.
