I’ve never been more thankful in my life! It may be hard to find those events or moments but in the cracks of our shared misery in 2020, there were beautiful moments that were truly memorable and worth giving thanks for even if you have no religion at all. The roller coaster ride is never truly over, but we have the embrace of our friends, families, and these days even strangers, we all yearn for kindness and generosity.

I tried to make a playlist for everyone in the family, even those who must be alone this holiday. There’s no doubt this year is bittersweet, but even in dark moods there is beauty, if not in music, then in literature, art, and theatre of all kinds. When you have a moment of blissful nostalgia, hang onto it and remember the past and future with equal measure, for you are extraordinary and despite our worst moments the world is still a wonderful place!
