Otherworldly Words: January

File:Janus.xcfJanuary is a time for new beginnings, and apparently, for looking back.

This month, I’m exploring words named for people, or, as in the case of January, named for a God. January is the month dedicated to Janus, the two-faced God of beginnings, transitions, and as such, doorways as well as the rising and setting of the sun. He looks always forward and backward, telling us to learn from the past as we strive for the future. 

May these lessons bless you in 2016.
