Those three little dots. So much in those three little dots.
There’s so much to say about 2020, and yet, it really doesn’t need to be said. We’ve all lived it. We’ve all experienced it. We’ve all had our own triumphs and tragedies.
As 2020 was coming to a close, I found myself reflecting on the year a lot. Interesting that I was looking back more than forward. Also interesting that I saw my year as a series of photos. So, here it is. My year in review. I think this might become a permanent feature.
2020 – My Year in Photos
My 2020 Photo of the Year
I think this might also become a permanent feature!
Of all the photos I took in 2020, I think this one is the quintessential image of a year defined by a pandemic. A friendly wave hello, from over there. His hand on this side of the window, but he is on the other side of the window. His face, with just a hint of a smile, is a little bit lost in the glare. Barriers. Separation. Isolation. Reticence.
We are at the brink of a new year. I have no illusions that when the clock marches on to January 1, 2021, that we’ll get to say goodbye to 2020 and all of its baggage. And even though there were a lot of things that made 2020 a rough year, there were some very good things about it too.
The start of a new year is powerful, nonetheless. It’s a time when we reflect on the past and hope for the future.
So…here’s wishing that the new year will bring you joy, peace, and happiness. I hope 2021 will bring you more love, prosperity and positivity. I hope your triumphs are many and your tragedies are few (and limited to things like you forgot to charge your phone or there’s a hole in the bottom of the trash bag). And I wish you good health and all the best in the new year.
Happy New Year!
