The cycle of tens and transition

Ten years ago it was 1999. I think it's interesting or instructive to reflect on this past 10 year season.
The last year of one cycle and the first year of the next cycle are transition years. We're right in the middle of transition. 1980, 1990, 2000, 2010 are Hebrew years 5740, 5750, 5760, and 5770.
