We are two nights away from the Winter Solstice. It is the darkest time of the year, and we are in the second year where sickness has moved around the world and destabilized all of us. It's a second Christmas where many families are forced apart, where masks are worn in supermarkets, where we remain tethered to our devices, because many of our social supports fell away in 2020 and we're not entirely sure when they'll reappear.
And I find myself wanting to document a few big blessings of this year. Before our planet starts to chart its path back to the sun. And take a moment to be thankful to you all for being part of this journey.
