Happy St. Partick’s Day! This is one of my favorite holidays and I usually make a big family meal to celebrate but this year will be a little different.
In the face of our current state, I’m starting to realize how many things I’ve taken for granted. Today, I’m reminded of how precious tradition is, for ourselves and community. It’s a device that garnishes our lives with predictability and connection, injecting rhythm into our year; sign posts of reprieve from the monotony of daily life. As we settle into this time of unpredictability, tradition becomes even more precious. Maybe we have been given the opportunity to forge new ones while our appreciation of old traditions deepen. It’s a bittersweet proposition but definitely worth considering.
Please take care of one another, laugh as much as you can, devour the moments as they come. Seek the silver lining and reflect it.
In the meantime, BadLibs.
