My New Year's Wish

¡Happy New Year!

 * * *

I know you’re out there, whoever you are, because I see the page visits. Keep coming back.

It’s been a challenging for me, as it has been for too many people I know and come into contact with. Too many of us have been “downsized” or discarded, and have been finding much too difficult to re-enter the stream.

Too many of us have lost our homes, our livelihoods, our sense of self, and sadly, our sense of hope. In all my years on this planet, I have yet been confronted with the waste, the lack of opportunity, the destruction that I have seen…

I know I will eventually prevail, somehow, but it’s been hard, especially recently. My hope, for all of us, is that we find it in our collective will to strike back at the forces that would marginalize the vast majority of us. I’ve seen glimpses of that spirit this past year -- something I haven’t seen in a long, long time and that has been the most beautiful thing this year -- this whole notion of taking back, of occupying, or decolonizing, of speaking truth to power.

And so this year has been both extremely hard and challenging but at the same time something beautiful has come from all this. I don’t know about you, but I’m not going down without a fight.

Many of you may have heard me state this before, but it bears repeating:

I don’t pray, but if I did, my prayer for you would be that you would be able to discover the passion in your life and that you would be fortunate enough to make that passion your life’s work. My prayer for you would be that your every action and thought would be dedicated to making manifest that passion.

Be careful and much love…
