… and please, Hello again to movies in the theaters!

I wish you a Happy New Year, and hope that you’re feeling cautiously hopeful about 2021 like I am.

I definitely have a renewed appreciation for our essential workers like doctors and teachers and law enforcement.  And as I spoke with IT to help me fix my internet today, I realized there are so many different people behind-the-scenes keeping our temporarily closed-up world afloat. Like the internet people, authors who wrote the zillion books I’ve read, and even podcasters.

Some of the books that have risen to the top of my 2020 are:








Delay, Don’t Deny: Living an Intermittent Fasting Lifestyle: Stephens, Gin

Gone: A Memoir of Love, Body, and Taking Back My Life: Olson, Linda K

The Thank-You Project: Cultivating Happiness One Letter of Gratitude at a Time

And my favorite new audiobook of fiction that helps me feel less alone while feeling alone is A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman.

While going to movie theaters has been mostly impossible where I live, podcasts have been a terrific way to feel a part of a community and learn new skills or consider different ideas.



To that end, I’ve adored Midlife Mixed Tape Podcast

The Creative Penn Podcast for writers.

And the newer one, The On-Call Empath for personal development.

What’s helped you stay strong?

If we’ve learned nothing more, it’s how adaptive we can be during the unexpected times.

I hear fireworks exploding down the street as we speak, so it’s time to go.

Happy New Year.

Goodbye 2020! And Hello, 2021!

My favorite memory: being in a theater alone!
