We all seem to have a pretty strong feeling for the year that we are about to leave behind. And for the most part it seems to be fairly negative.
But not everything was bad. I am sure if we are honest, there has been positive events that has happened to us during 2021. Yes, no doubt, collectively we have been going thru some really trying times for the last couple of years. And every time it feels like we are about to turn a new chapter, somehow we end up back where we were.
If we try to look at the various good / positive events of this year, I am confident we can all find a few things.

Dust if you must, but wouldn’t it be better
To paint a picture, or write a letter,
Bake a cake, or plant a seed;
Ponder the difference between want and need?
Dust if you must, but there’s not much time,
With rivers to swim, and mountains to climb;
Music to hear, and books to read;
Friends to cherish, and life to lead.
Dust if you must, but the world’s out there
With the sun in your eyes, and the wind in your hair;
A flutter of snow, a shower of rain,
This day will not come around again.
Dust if you must, but bear in mind,
Old age will come and it’s not kind.
And when you go (and go you must)
You, yourself, will make more dust.
I am not defined by my accomplishments nor am I diminished by my failures. A very important lesson that we are not really taught nor reminded. Thank you Simone Biles for doing it for us all.
No idea why I started to watch it. Saw The Saint in my suggestion list but it was not free and this just happened to be one of the next ones. The short description was somewhat interesting:
When his drunken ex-girlfriend won’t leave him alone, a man asks a married woman staying at the same hotel to pretend to be his . . .
Very cheesy, but I don’t think they were trying to avoid that. If you can look past the cheesy, it is pretty well made. Definitely enjoyed watching – around midnight.
