Hello Fellow Readers, The Press publishes a New Year’s pictorial issue to provide their staff time off between Christmas and New Year’s. I enjoy the deadline respite, too, but I wish to reach out to my faithful online followers to thank you for being part of our community.
We welcome a New Year, with many sentiments of good riddance to 2020. A year we entered with such optimism. The number itself, 2020, invites the concept of balance, of “perfect” vision. But there’s no such thing as perfect. And, we can have better than 20-20 vision.
Maybe the hardships and challenges we’ve experienced are part of a realignment of sorts, moving towards a balance of peace amongst each other, respect, and kindness. For these things, I pray.
Happy New Year! Here’s to a new year of reflection, gratitude, and growth. Thank you for sharing the garden of life with me, Mary
