There comes a time when the old must give way to the new. It’s not that the old is bad, but when the past can’t keep up with the present, you know it’s time to make way for the future. Given any consolidation, I would have preferred to hold on to the past a little bit longer, if only make the best out of a future with the resources I have.
Then again, maybe I’m just a sentimental romantic. Not that there is anything wrong with that either.
