A single candle

What quote am I vibing? "Just as the light of a single candle can dispel the darkness of a thousand years, the moment we light a single candle of wisdom, no matter how long or deep our confusion, ignorance is dispelled." Joseph Goldstein

Pounds of Trash Removed from the Wild in 2020: 996

All-Time Pounds of Trash Removed from the Wild: 1520

Some people love the joy of the holiday season, others, like me, find it a difficult time of year. Mixing the very common seasonal depression from the shorter days with the grief of a loved one passing during this time (as so many seem to!!), and you have a recipe for grinchiness. We pick and choose what might brighten our spirits, and it may change from one day to the next.

All this to say, this is not my most productive time of year, even in a good year. I have had "blog" on my to do list for weeks now, and today I caught a wave of productivity to make it happen. Imagine my delight when I found out that I am 4 pounds short of my annual goal of 1000 pounds! I'll take that motivation, and that candle in the darkness.

Please know that if this is not your time of year, you are not alone. We are all doing our best to get through. Take the moments of sunshine (much rarer north of Florida, I know!) - take the things that make you smile. And give yourself space to breathe and grieve. And while you're at it, if you can, give a little love to our home planet - she will thank you!
