2021: It’s upward from here.

My end of year blog post got delayed because the magnitude of 2020 has been overwhelming on so many fronts. We’ve experienced Covid personally and collectively in all realms of life all across planet Earth. When I allow that thought to sink in I feel so much more connected to our humanity and our stake in the survival of our planet. I feel more connected to doing small positive acts that bring about big change. I am also saddened by all the lives lost to the virus, as well as the patients experiencing lasting side effects. As we continue taking steps towards sharing space together it is with an acknowledgement that every aspect of our lives has been altered, hopefully for the better. While NYC continues to recover I tip my hat to all the essential, city and state workers who have taken care of us in hospitals, zoom schooling, zoom therapy, zoom church and work-outs, delivering meals, the list goes on. And without technology and the power of information and communication it would’ve been a lonelier time for sure. Here is 1 image that says it all. Yes, I worked. I wore a mask for 10 hours a day and made images that I like, with creatives and clients I enjoy but 2020 is not about my styling.
