Merry Christmas! From Lake Tahoe, I wish you and yours a day of love, near or far, together or apart, present or in memory.
It’s been months since my last post, which was the culmination of blogging every day for one year through the ups and downs of the pandemic. I stepped away after that last post on April 6th and expected I would write again in a month or two. Eight months have since passed. I’ve been surprised to realize that, during a time when togetherness remains an elusive goal, disconnecting in other ways may be just as important to mental health.
On this day of celebration, many of us feel more grateful than ever within the context of the past two years, with all that has transpired and with the moments we have seized to live and travel “normally” among the constant ebbs and flows. I look forward to sharing new posts from Mexico and Italy, two places we were able to explore more of in 2021. The Dolomites were EPIC and I can’t wait to take you along on the trail.
As we look ahead to 2022, our love of traveling and exploring the world feels even deeper amid the longing for opportunity. Let’s remain hopeful, support equity in world health, keep dreaming of distant lands, and be packed and ready when the time comes around.
