New Year’s Eve

Hi everyone – today’s post will be short and sweet. I normally give a summary of my year, my reflections, my blogging plans on New Year’s Eve, but I need to postpone. I want to wish you all a wonderful new year! Featured image is the beautiful Orion constellation today.

In the meantime, 2020 is clinging with a vice grip with a complimentary ball and chain. My boyfriend is currently sick with COVID-19, and many of friends have lost loved ones. They don’t have the energy to speak to me now and need as much rest as possible. I’ll be snuggling up with one of my boyfriend’s fantasy books, Arafel’s Saga by C.J. Cherryh , an Elven story.

Here is a quote from the first paragraph in the book:

Things there are in the world which have never loved Men, which have been in the world far longer than humankind, so that once when Men were newer on the earth and the woods were greater, there had been places a Man might walk where he might feel the age of the world on his shoulders.

Forests grew in which the stillness was so great he could hear stirrings of a life no part of his own. There were brooks from which the magic had not gone, mountains which sang with voices, and sometimes a wind touched the back of his neck and lifted the hairs with the shiver of a presence at which a Man must never turn and stare.

But the noise of Men grew more and more insistent. Their trespasses became more bold. Death had come with them, and the knowledge of good and evil, and this was a power they had, both to be virtuous and to be blind.

Take care, friends, and I’ll see you again in 2021

    • Hey Mr.A, hope you are well! I’ve been feeling bummed out with intermittent feelings of joy & gratitude in between due to caring friends. He’s been bedridden for a few weeks now. One day he’s fine, and on another, he’s fatigued and coughing heavily. I might not see him till the end of this month. He thought it was a stroke of luck that I didn’t get sick from him and his family considering how much time I spend with them. Though, I’ve been strengthening my immune system all throughout last year. Tested negative myself and remaining cautious. Happy new year, Mr. A. Take care & I look forward to seeing what new posts you have in store!
