Welcome the new year...

We all share hopes that the year 2021 will be better than what the nation has gone through in 2020. Given the blessings and curse sight, we've seen unprecedented environmental disasters, "proud boys" running amuck, a brutal pandemic completely mismanaged by the Trump administration, 300,000+ unnecessary deaths, and police brutality exposed at an unprecedented level (had you ever dreamed that you'd see a black man on TV being strangled by a white police officer during a pandemic while that officer looks up for the camera and the man is telling the officer, "I can't breathe"?).

If 2021 is to become a better year, it's up to us. It will take the first half of the year to get enough of us vaccinated that we begin to feel safe. Mask up, my friends. We're in this together. Keep busy cooking and caring. Make some useful beauty. to share with each other. Keep hoping and praying for better days. But know that hope is not enough. We must care for each other and show that care by all that we do.

The photo shows dawn in Arkansas. We are at the very crack of dawn for a new year. We can make it better than the one we just lived through.

Make, fix and create. Assist others in living likewise.
