What a year this was!
Never have I been happier to see a year go.
I’m thankful for all the hard workers that risk their life daily. I hope you will be vaccinated soon! Sad for all who lost loved ones this year, pandemic related or not.
2020 taught me a lot:
- gratitude for modern technology that allows me to stay in contact with friends and family
- it opened my eyes wider for the privileged life I live
- I enjoyed discussions about racism and reflected on my own white fragility
- It made me realize that we are all social ‘animals’ and we need each other. I’m looking forward to gatherings small and large again when this is over!
I also kept busy while being confined to a shelter in place order for most of the year.
I am happy to share with you my YouTube channel.
My lists on where to go exploring keeps getting longer. Wanderlust for local spots will always be my passion. To document this I started putting this in a book. Yes, this is as much a teaser as it is a motivation for me to finish 😀
Highlights of 2020
Anyway, in this COVID ridden year there were a few highlights, or at least hope for something better to come.
After the killing of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor people took to the streets in mass protests for BLM. Here again is my list on how you can make sure that Black Lives Matter: Support Black Lives.
Do you want to contribute to record the history we are currently living, please check out my post Share your COVID-19 Experiences.
And let’s not forget about people that lost so much this year. While wildfires raged through most of the Bay Area and people lost their houses (Help the Fire Victims), the pandemic was the reason a lot of people lost their jobs and are in need of food relief programs (Feed People in Need).
I wish you all a great start into the New Year and hope everyone will have a happier life.
Keep on fighting the good fight.
Peace, Justice, and Joy!
