2020 ends as Winter Solstice

is upon us

followed by Christmas

nights are longer and colder

the Christmas Star makes an appearance when Saturn and Jupiter form a brilliant star as they appear in the night sky.

Clouds part and the skies have been colorful!

Sunrises and sunsets are brilliant!

Will we have a white Christmas with fluffy snowflakes – enough to sled in? It’s everyone’s Christmas wish!

This year has proven to be one of the most challenging in my life and in the lives of everyone I know from Brussels to Washington State, Providence Rhode Island to Pantego North Carolina, every country, city, town and island in-between.

Recently a friend asked a question on Facebook has anyone accomplished anything they are proud of? I answered with the following:

  1. I managed to live a grateful life
  2. to forgive those who have hurt me over and over again for years
  3. to schedule a meditation/yoga hour every morning before going to work at 8 a.m.
  4. to participate in an 8 hour certification class for Reiki Tummo Level II
  5. to listen more
  6. to be more compassionate with others
  7. to paint
  8. sew
  9. play games
  10. spend more time in the woods
  11. to write and converse with the Divine
  12. to attend more meetings regarding recovery and self-discovery
  13. to be an advocate for those suffering with the effects of a prescribed medication such as a benzodiazapene
  14. to create more photocards
  15. to draw more
  16. to be more appreciative of my spouse and co-workers
  17. to be more empathetic to those who have less and struggle more

There’s been many opportunities to love, to give, to share what I have with others, and I have done my best.


What will 2021 bring? I don’t know. What I do know is that praying to God and taking care of myself is essential, if I am to help others.

Planting seeds of kindness and gratitude will produce love the size of sunflowers.

May God bless each of you with health and a heart full of gratitude and kindess.
