A YEAR OF CHANGE by Rachel Nebenzal

2020 Started off with a bang with such promise and hope.
Then, life as we knew it ceased. Fear and uncertainty in a world full of death and disregard
Raging political climate of hate turned to a climate of love and hope renewed
Relationships lost, but new ones formed
A year lost, but what was gained? Independence, strength, self-love, presence, new friendships, better health.
Lost freedoms forced new discoveries, new interests, and new hobbies.
Fully vaccinated and cautiously emerging back into the world. Always trying to keep a positive attitude.
Forgotten hugs and personal interaction are anew.
Empty nest lingers on the horizon to another set of new beginnings
Hopeful for them and the new discoveries.
