2020, 2021, and onward into 2022

 It's been an interesting couple of years.

2020 felt like the year that would never end.

2021 flew by so quickly I feel like I missed parts of it.

2022 is just around the corner.

Who knows what it will be like.

WIll it go by quickly, slowly,

Be full of difficult moments,

Be full of happy memories, new and old?

Ring in the new year, ring out the old.

It’s mid-December.

Days are getting shorter as nights get longer.

Soon that will reverse,

And days will begin to grow,

As nights shrink a minute or two at a time.

It’s time to celebrate another year’s passing,

And cheer our entrance into the new year.

Time to slow down

and catch up on life.

Time to speed up

when the pace feels too slow.


is passing 

as this is being written,

As it is being read.

The present becoming the past,

The future becoming the present.

2020 was the year we would like to forget.

2021 is the year we’ll soon leave behind..

2022 will be …

Will it be a year of possibilities?

Will it be a year of creating another new normal?

WIll it be the year 


makes the others worth it?
