Looking Back on 2022 with Heartfelt Thanks!

“You live life looking forward, you understand life looking backward.”

Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855; Danish Philosopher, theologican, and cultural critic who had a major impact on existentialism.)

DEAR READERS,

As we enter the last day of 2022, I can’t let the year slip away without seizing the opportunity to thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Writing my weekly posts has anchored me during a year when I needed to be anchored. Knowing that you were out there reading my posts has strengthened me and uplifted me during a year when I needed to be strengthened and uplifted.

Looking back, I am surprised by the results! You might be, too. Let me share.

Wouldn’t it be grand if we could reach out, join hands, and celebrate worldwide unity and inclusion, advocated so powerfully in Bob Marley’s “One Love”:

One love, one heart

Let’s get together and feel all right.

Maybe—just maybe—that’s exactly what we’re doing together in our own small way–week by week; post by post–right here in this blog.

I have no idea how you found your way into my life in 2022, but as we welcome 2023, I hope that you will continue to stand by me as we read our way together throughout the New Year!
