Fade To Black, Rise To Light
In three words, I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on. ~ Robert Frost
We’ve finally come to the end of this horrendous year.
I don’t need to get into – we all know that from March, 2020 has been one flaming dumpster fire.
Violence and rioting in the streets.
Something in this list touched us all, I’m sure.
And, we all know that just because the calendar turns from December to January, things don’t magically get better.
No, the length of the same actions that got us to this point – turning a blind eye to how other people are treated or too many tortilla chips late at night – is directly proportional to how we get out of the muck.
OK, maybe not directly proportional. I’m over-simplifying it.
What I’m saying is, to get OUT of the muck, we all have to go back in the and put the time in.
Do the roadwork as I’ve said in the past.
And, the top of a new, fresh year is as good place as any to start.
Yes, 2020 was filled with a lot of heartache.
But there was good too.
Even in the midst of it, there was good, there was beauty, there was music, there was art, there was literature.
Heck, maybe some of you even opened up this blog to get away from it all for a just a few minutes. To see what was going on with that guy in New Jersey.
For that, I hope I helped and I thank you.
So, 2020 will fade to black in a few hours. Most of us made it thought, intact and able.
Many of us didn’t.
Whatever your state, when you wake up on January 1, take a deep breath, and start in on doing the roadwork.
And we’ll continue to meet up here to see how we’re doing.
So…peace, love and understanding to all of you.
Take photos. Immortalize your life.
Back up your work!
See you in 2021.
