Happy New Year

The Year That Wasn’t ©

2020, not quite what we expected.

Conspiracy theorists soon rejected

laws enacted to keep us all protected

while parents and elders all felt neglected.

Despite all of this, people still struggled on,

before entering stores, their face mask they’d don,

front line workers so tired they can’t even yawn,

all tirelessly working from dusk to dawn.

At long last, the long tunnel shows some faint light,

treatments and vaccines arrive aiding the fight.

Are we now nearing the end of our long plight,

not quite over yet, but out future is bright.

Happy New Year to all my readers and their families. May we hear a few different more hopeful words in 2020.

After working for 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 3+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wanted me to do has been rewarding. While I still miss the social aspect of working with a team of great people, I have managed to keep in touch with many from my former team and I have many friends and family members who now fulfill this part of my life. Now that my Patty has retired, we are able to spend more time in pursuits and with people who are near and dear to us. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may not become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. And to you Aiva. How is 2021 looking so far. A beautiful rosy sky this morning as the Cold Moon wanes. Still mild weather. I think it is looking pretty good. Thanks for your friendship. Allan

      1. It is looking OK. I believe this is how life is now and we must learn to live this new way and take responsibility for our own actions. It will all work out, it must. Looking towards a more positive and brighter year ahead. Lyn

    1. Thanks Bernie. You are too kind, but glad you like the poems. Sometimes the words just pop into my head and other times, the reworking goes on for days. Hope you had a great New Year’s Eve and Day. Thanks for reading. Allan
