Sorry. No data so far.
Look how optimistic I am, even in the face of navigating a year that has set its sights on undoing all of us.
I’m still holding out hope that we can and will collect the redeeming factors of this journey. Oh Lord, let us pick up something transformative.
We don’t even hesitate to talk about 2020 as if it is a person. We attribute to it all the characteristics of people we despise. Ornery. Mean. Unpredictable. Crafty. Ruthless. Indifferent.
I’m writing this as two—yes, two—tropical storms are bearing down on the gulf coast after having ripped through the Caribbean. In the middle of a pandemic. And economic, political and societal upheaval. Oh, and Beirut is in shambles. And we are trying to figure out a new way to do school. And somehow there aren’t enough coins in circulation. And California and Colorado are on fire.
I saw a meme the other day that made me laugh in a sad pathetic sort of way. “How many beers exactly does 2020 want me to hold?!!”
This may indeed be a crossroads for many of you reading this. It may be a decisive moment presented as a gift, wrapped in a world in turmoil. Has 2020 transformed your marriage yet?
Reflect on the question. Don’t be afraid to stare it down and arrive at some answers.
Although, if you have a junk drawer, there might some loose coins in there. I’m just saying. Hidden treasure abounds everywhere, my friends. We just have to be willing to look.
