A year ago, I had no idea what the next 365 days would bring. It’s so long ago. It’s yesterday. Time’s warped, forever perhaps, but at least I’m still here. Immersed in a winter hibernation, finally relaxing, resting and preparing for whatever comes after. After winter. After vaccination. After the pandemic finally ends. No matter what, though, there will never be a return to before. Once you achieve the gifts of awareness, there’s no pretending you don’t see.

I don’t know what the next 365 days will bring, but I know that I’ll do what I can, with my eyes wide open.
