Happy New Year

Early in 2020, I saw this view at sunset. It looked ominous with the fire-like glow on the horizon, perhaps portending how our world was about to change.

Although we had tough times in 2020 both individually and as a society, there were moments of great beauty.


Comet Neowise was a wonderful surprise of 2020. We had such fun watching it. On one of our outings to a mountain lake to watch it, we took R with us (and left the others at home) as a special treat for him and us. I am so glad that we did. In a sense, it was one last adventure with him.

I am sure that 2021 will hold both wonder and sadness like most years do. I hope that wonder wins in our hearts.

Happy New Year.
