It is our nature to do this

It is our nature to do this soul-searching, year-to-year. I am working on a piece regarding our fuzzy notions about infinity and whether it means anything, and, am coming to conclude it does not, yet we still think about it, while wringing our figurative hands over a previous year. I suppose, as the Baha'i used to say, and probably still do: perfection is in perfecting. However, if we can never hope to 'get there', does any of that really matter? I just don't think so.
