🗓 Winter solstice, #December 2020. Took a break from posting photos since June. Sat with a lot. Listened. Focused inward, on essentials, on sheltering, and being sustainably supportive of others.
This month feels different. The U.S. Electoral college voted, shifting a critical mass of support for moving forward with election results. The Pfizer vaccine shipped and first doses have been administered.
Daily cases & tragedies continue, nearly ignored by the U.S. government, cruel obstructions of aid for months, only recently offering up mere crumbs for those in need.
As individuals there’s only so much we can do by ourselves. What we can do we should, putting on our own masks, filling our own cups so we’re not pouring from emptiness. 2020 has laid bare layers of challenges, individual entitlement & irresponsibility, masses succumbing to misinformation, systemic biases against those least privileged, racist idolatory of a narcissistic president.
And yet there’s bits of hope. 15 days until the chance of flipping Georgia’s Senate seats. 30 days until our next president can snap his fingers with day 1 executive orders to undo so much damage.
Balance work & joy while staying safe friends. Take care of yourselves, your loved ones, and let’s make it to 2021.
