2016—The Year of The Monkey. What Will it Bring?

              by David Parmer / Tokyo

Here we are, again at the end of another year. To say how fast it went can reveal our age, for as we age, each year seems to fly by and we find ourselves looking at the beginning of another new year.

2015 was filled with events on the world stage, some tragic and some promising and encouraging. British writer Charles Dickens began his famous novel about the French Revolution, A Tale of Two Cities, with the phrase: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…” That seems to sum up the beginning of the 21st century. In some ways it seems a race against time—which trends will prevail, those that lead us down to barbarism and chaos or those that lead us up to the stars?
