Friends, family, to all I know, A toast to 2021. A new year, new thoughts, new memories to make, Riding a wave of hope, escaping the reality of the year past. To each I offer words to uplift, thoughts of peace, a hand of support, deep gratitude for your presence.
I’m crying. Crying with joy Crying with relief Crying with hope Crying with laughter Crying with anticipation Crying with expectation Crying with compassion Crying with release Crying with concern I’m crying for our country.
Four days, four chaotic days. It won’t be over, but almost. No one totally satisfied, Winners and losers emerging midst Anger and joy, anguish and celebrations, Conflict, turmoil, reevaluations and compromised acceptance. The path to a nation’s soul pockmarked with upheaval, Paved with hope for a changed and matured nation.
My heart opens to beauty and hope after multiple nights of pain and despair. See more flowers at https://ceenphotography.com/2020/05/30/fotd-may-31-peony-wanting-to-bloom/
