It probably doesn’t need to be said that 2020 has been a wild ride and not the best kind. Anything terrible or unbelievable that has happened to us personally or to the world at large will almost always be blamed on the year itself. We’re exhausted, frustrated, and maybe less optimistic than we were 10 or 20 years ago. At this point we would be glad to rush the end of 2020 in the hopes things will somehow look up in 2021. Whether or not it will happen remains to be seen, and there is that ever persistent fear nothing will change no matter how hard we try. Despite the turbulent year I do try to find some pockets of sunshine and reasons to celebrate. This month marks the anniversary of the simpleek blog.
