2021…This Year is Done…2022…We All Become New…

Here we stand reflecting on 2021…after today, a year all done. What will you leave behind…and what will you bring forward in the New Year?

How and what did you contribute to the year we are leaving behind, in a matter of hours? With the restrictions of the pandemic, politics, and altered nature causing horrific tolls on our country and the world, how did you make your presence felt in the last twelve months? Were you a beast… a burden? Were you a saint or a sinner? Were you naughty or nice? Were you an instigator or a Savior? Were you an innovator or a diehard? Can you look back on 2021 and say that you were the best of yourself? Or can you be honest enough to say you weren’t?

Each year becomes more riddled with obstacles and trials that test our mettle and our humanity…

Each year…we are called into the role of shepherd…and each year…we fall short.

Each year…we are given the realization of our connections to one another…and our planet…and our ignorance prevails…

For each one of us Time is finite…It is a reality that we face every day…If anything has given us that sobering realization…let’s start with our introduction last year to the coronavirus…and it’s continuing reign.

What will you bring forward in the New Year?

What about a new you?

A new you with the realization that you cannot rely upon someone you give your vote to…to represent your best interests…understand that there is not one with a heart of gold…or who can walk on water…and promises in politics…are always made to be broken…

This new you will also have the realization that life on our planet has had it’s longevity cut in half because the powers that be…have chosen to honor and support the almighty exchange…money…instead of the continuity of life on all levels…

The new you will realize that change is in your hands…it is your power to change every circumstance which hinders or suppresses opportunities to rise into the stratosphere of humanity at it’s best and finest.

The new you will realize that we can arrest and control the coronavirus from its constant mutations…by everyone practicing the protocols that would protect every man, woman and child…because we have the compassion and common sense to understand that we must stand together to conquer that which seeks to divide us…permanently.

No one’s rights are being challenged, taken away or restricted by sense and sensibilities…that tell us that the right thing to do is to ensure continuity of life by doing whatever is available to stop the loss of another million lives…The new you holds that power in the palm of your hands…The new you is and always has been the instrument of Change…

You…me…we are the catalyst of creating the best life and conditions for our human family….

2022 is upon us…

Close the door on 2021…bring forward the new you in 2022…

Thanks for the lessons 2021…So long…Farewell…Goodbye….

Whatever the New Year brings…

It begins with…You.

Become New…in 2022….

As April Ends…May Begins…

I pitched in and made masks for my community and posted that they were free to have to those who wanted to be protected, and to protect others if they were symptomatic, or asymptomatic…I received a fairly good response…yet and still, when I had to go out for food shopping, I noticed that people were out and about without masks…speaking to each other face to face, unmindful of social distancing and acting as it everything was as it was before this virus descended upon the world population…

As April Ends…May Begins…with the strange belief that all is falling behind us….businesses can reopen…people can once again repopulate common areas, and all will be right with the world, once more…Nothing could be further from the truth!

How can it be believed that after a little more than a month of sequestering, the virus has been controlled–without a vaccine–enough to put the population at risk of increased reduction due to additional infection, just to restart the economy?

Imagine….should the virus erupt three times as destructive to the populace of the world due to the rush to make money and move product, will there be enough people left to stimulate this revived economy?!  We must value human life more than the material gains so many wish to rush back into producing…Human lives and the environment cannot regenerate or reproduce at such an accelerated rate should the majority of it die or be destroyed…Sense and sensibility must prevail to preserve life and this living planet.

As April Ends…May Begins at high stakes…Don’t give in to the superficial and replaceable elements of materialism…Let’s save our souls…by saving and respecting our lives and the lives of others…give our planet extended life…Wear masks…wear gloves…practice social distancing…until a vaccine is produced we are all targets of this virus…our callousness to our planet weakens her reserve…be mindful…be courteous…considerate…compassionate…kind…don’t dump, litter or disregard the need to recycle, conserve and clean up after ourselves…this virus lives on materials cast aside, filled with live germs to infect the innocent and unsuspecting.

You are your brother and sisters’ keeper…your brothers and sisters are the world population…be good shepherds and shepherdesses…mind your flocks…who are your neighbors, families and friends, known or unknown, and all of the earth’s living, breathing entities and animals…be wise…be prudent…love… will show you how.

As April Ends…May Begins our journey toward recovery…Caution and reserve are the keys to the new world…Proceed with care…We are the key masters…..
