Love and Happiness and Good Health and Peace on Earth for 2021...


We all gain so much from just a little bit of kindness toward one another!

In spite of our differences, we're all ultimately sharing one thing in common - we are HUMAN, having a human experience on earth. You have freedom of choice: you can choose to make it bad, horrible, and hurtful to others, filling your life with venomous hatred, or you can choose to not be that way and live a life with kindness and peace. It's up to you.

I am forever and wholly grateful to all the experiences - good and bad - which are the total sum of me. Many good things occurred in 2020 that gave me much cheer and, I dare to think, to others, as well (among other things, I published two magazines! It felt incredible to share some beauty to others!).

Yet, sadly, 2020 was not in any way what most of us would consider having been a 'good year' by far. However, the dark cannot exist without the light; in each are lessons that we must pay attention to and grow from.

To quote Mary Oliver (one of my favorite poets) :

"Someone I loved once gave me a box of darkness. It took me years to understand that this, too was a gift."

May your coming new year be filled with good things. Take care, and spread your positivity -it shines like a star.

With love and much gratitude,

Ellen Gee
