Well, thank GOD that year is over. I’m sure everything changes now, right?? We can all let out a big sigh of relief. The calvary, in the form of multiple vaccines, has arrived and soon we will all be hugging and kissing like in the black-and-white photos after the end of World War II . Right? Right??
There are years that ask questions and years that answer.Zora Neale Hurston, ‘Their Eyes Were Watching God’
Last year left me with many questions. How do I continue to navigate the unknowns without being paralyzed in the unknowing? How do I accompany others, and how do I want to be accompanied? How do I manage the duality of maintaining an optimistic outlook and avoiding toxic positivity?
I have a deep sense that looking for the answers is not productive, nor will it yield satisfactory results. I believe the answers, if they come, will reveal themselves if I remain open and alert.
As a friend said recently, “last year was one, endless, fucking invitation.” True that. How will you respond?
