Reflections on The Gap

A cursory google search for quotes about “today” is filled with such optimistic hyperbole that it starts to feel somewhat trite. “Today is the first day of the rest of your life.” “Make your someday today.” Or the simple “Today is a good day.” Ernest Hemingway is quoted as saying, “Today is only one day in all the days that will ever be.

Ah – The Jetsons! “Meet George Jetson, his boy Elroy, daughter Judy, Jane – his wife!” Can you hear the theme song that brought the promise of a space-age tomorrow to Saturday morning televisions across the country? Although the single-season cartoon was originally only aired from September 1962 to March 1963, it lived on in syndication for…

The Space Between
