New Year’s Day Greeting Postcard
Every new year is an occasion for optimism and 2021 was no different. I had high hopes for recovery from health challenges for myself and high hopes for recovery from this catastrophic pandemic response for the world at large. At the close of 2021, I find myself aching from pain and disappointment on both counts.
I suspect 2022 will find us all challenged in our optimism, so my postcard message is decidedly subdued, compared with last year’s message: Twenty-twenty, Not so funny. Twenty-twenty-one, Let’s have some fun.
Personally, I plan to persevere, i.e. “make it through,” so that the successes, so elusive in 2021, will manifest in 2022.
Wishing a happy, healthy, blessed 2022 New Year to family, friends and everyone around the world.
