We will mark the end of this year with hearts that are heavy for all that has been lost and also hopeful for all that still can be.
We know the next two weeks will look nothing like what is traditional for us. We don’t know how we will fill the time and spaces that are wide open in the absence of opportunities to be among family and friends. I am resisting the urge to fill all the empty spaces with plans.
Gentle joy feels attainable as opposed to aspirational – so gentle joy is my goal and also my wish for all of you.
Hope for a healthier and safer 2021 is alive and well, but we’re not there yet.
