💫 Happy 2023 💫
As I was thinking about what to write I spent some time looking back through my feed. My entry from the end of 2020 stopped me in my tracks—it brought back a flood of memories. I decided to repost as a) a reminder of how far we’ve come and b) to hang on to a bit of what we discovered during that time ❤️ xo
Don’t let the door hit you on the way out 2020🚪Grateful of course for many, many things but also happy to see the back end of this loathsome year.
Looking back at 2020 saw my painting take a bit of a backseat—sustaining concentration was often a challenge 😑—but I started up a tea towel business that has been very gratifying. Definitely a plus. I also ran a kindness project (another plus). I discovered a love of Cheetos and Nerds (this has got to be a minus. Apparently desperate times do require desperate measures). I loved seeing all the “C’est va bien aller”s in people’s windows. I did not love that hugs and handshakes got cancelled. I loved seeing so many people out walking in the evenings. I did not love not being able to have people in our home. And on and on.
So here’s to 2021. May it be a kinder year. I wish each of you days filled with love, peace and belonging. A gentle spirit and curious, intelligent conversation. Laughter to chase away sadness. Drive out loneliness and ask for what you need. Onward.
