The year that would have been

It would have been the beginning of a decade
It became the definition of an era

It would have been another mostly unremarkable year in the progression
It became the year to re-examine priorities and focus

It would have been the year to step into the spotlight
It became the year to re-discover the satisfaction of small, private actions

It would have been the year for journeys and experiences with friends and family
It became the year where every brief encounter with friend or family was sacred and precious


2020 was a year

It would have been something
It became something much more


There was never a time when 20/20 vision was more needed. And, there was never a time (at least that I can recall) when our visions were more contentious.

Are we reacting to horrible circumstance, or creating it?

What Wouldn’t You Do?

There are lots and lots of things I wouldn’t do in my normal life. What I absolutely wouldn’t do under any circumstances, though, is a much shorter list.


I am a solitary person. I am quite content being alone most of the time. I am only truly fulfilled, though, when my life is shared with trusted others.


I am proud of my successes, and love to remember them. Truthfully, though, my failures have taught me much more – and been more instrumental in making me who I am.

What Others Think

What other people think about me.

  1. Is not my business.
  2. Is irrelevant to me.
  3. Is probably not what I think they think, anyway.

I Remember

I remember the days

When I longed for

The things I have now.
