I’m reading a lot of stories right now about all of the things people lost during the world’s collective “lost year.” Lost lives, lost jobs, lost relationships, lost days and hours staring mindlessly at Netflix wondering when “just staying put for two weeks and it will all be over” would ever actually be over.

Maybe you’re reading this and thinking I am going to counter these stories of loss and make some trite list of all the beauty I found in just sitting outside or connecting with people I hadn’t seen in years on Zoom parties or hiking for hours…
