Welcome to the final issue of the Weekly Thing for 2021! After I hit send on Issue #207 I won’t be back to your inbox until January 22nd with issue #208. What will you do to enjoy your Saturday morning coffee without the Weekly Thing? I’m sure you will figure something out. 😊
I really enjoy the holiday season, and try to slow things down. It is the perfect opportunity for me to take some purposeful time to reflect. With the higher than usual level of volatility in our lives over the last couple of years, I think that time for reflection is more needed than ever. I also have this growing feeling that in addition to the volatility, we all have a lot more noise in our lives than we ever had before. There are so many ways for things to get to us. Too many. Solitude may be the rarest commodity of all, even rarer than privacy.
