Holler Widdershins!

Happy New Year!! We have a few things to look forward to in the new year. In just a few weeks Biden/Harris will be sworn in as the new President and Vice President respectively. There is, of course, a lot of work to be done. But we can be hopeful about the future and we must keep moving forward. What are some of your hopes for 2021?

I know I am not alone when I say, #2020 was the worst year I’ve ever experienced. Even 1996, the year my mother died at the age of 54, was not as bad – because the world made sense. Our country was being run by sensible people, there were no wars, people were working and able to make ends meet, and of course, there was no public health crisis. I could see people and lean on people in my grief, no masks and social distancing required. In 2020, there is a feeling that the world is burning down around us and the Republicans are doing nothing but adding fuel to the fire.

So let’s say goodbye to this year and all its horrors….but if you’re so inspired, let’s share anything positive that happened over the past 12 months, that we’re grateful for, and anything we’re looking forward to in 2021.

I’ll start off with something good that happened this year: We instituted a new tradition between me and my college friends – the weekly Zoom. Every Tuesday, members of our “Drew Crew” (including spouses, parents and children of course!) talk, laugh and share our love for each other. While initially some people were skeptical, it’s become something we all look forward to – and we just talked about continuing it after the vaccine, testing and contact tracing have made life a bit more normal next summer. It’s been a blessing and a light in these dark times.

I love you all, Widdershins, and I have hope that this darkness will recede. Happy New Year, and on to 2021!

Open thread as usual. (Forgive the LOTR video – we just watched the Two Towers extended edition and this speech has been resonating with me lately.)
