2020: A year of grace & grief, of laud & lament.
As the familiar Ecclesiastical prose has captured since time immemorial – to everything there is a season. In reflection, one cannot deny that this year comprised them all.
Here’s to the weary, the whiplashed & worn.
Here’s to the beginnings that resulted from deeply felt ends.
Here’s to the binds that held us up, held us back, & somehow, when vulnerably shared, held us together.
Here’s to the history makers, the history repeaters, & the humble inquirers of wisdom past for present understanding.
Here’s to the breakthroughs, the breakups, & the bound-up broken in-betweens.
Here’s to our shared humanity & our infinite differences.
It ALL mattered. Because people ALWAYS matter.
Even in the shadows, the silence & sorrow songs that echoed to eternal ears.
Here’s to another turn ‘round the sun.
May the coming dawn shine fresh mercies upon us all.
