ANNUS HORRIBILIS PASSED, NEW YEAR HOPES FOR BETTER BUT…..

Read Time:3 Minute, 17 Second

I HAD A HORRIBLE YEAR BUT THANK GOD I AM STILL ALIVE AND LIVE IN HOPE IN 2021



THE START OF THE 2020 FOUND ME IN HOSPITAL WITH PNEUMONIA THAT I THOUGHT WAS A BAD COLD. WAS IT REALLY A BAD COLD OR WAS IT SOMETHING MORE SINISTER? WAS IT COVID19 CAMOUFLAGED AS A SERIOUS LUNG ISSUE MASQUERADING AS PNEUMANIA?

THE PROBLEM WAS THAT I WAS NOT AWARE OF ALL THE THINGS THAT WERE DEVELOPING SINCE DECEMBER 2019 AND THAT I WAS TO SPENT THREE WEEKS IN HOPSITAL WITH A MAJOR OPERATION TO SAVE MY LIFE. AM THANKFUL TO THE HOSPITALS AND STAFF WHO TOOK GOOD CARE OF ME AND SAVED MY LIFE? BET, I AM AND AS IT PROVED LATER, THE LOT OF US ARE INDEBTED TO THESE PEOPLE WHO DAILY LOOK AFTER THOUSANDS AND MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WORLDWIDE.



NOW TO TODAY’S REALITY AND THE HOPE FOR SOME KIND OF NORMAL LIFE!


WE HAVE AN ENEMY WE HAVE NO IDEA WHERE IT IS HIDING TO ATTACK, WHERE IT IS GOING TO COME FROM AND HAVE NOT EVEN A VAGUE IDEA HOW TO PROTECT OURSELVES. WE TAKE REFUGE WITHIN OUR HOMES AND WONDER FOR HOW LONG WE CAN HOLD ON TO DEAR LIFE AND RETURN TO SOME KIND OF NORMALITY. NERVES ARE BREAKING, EFFORTS TO SURVIVE ARE WEAKENING, WISDOM DESERTS US ALL AND WE ARE ALL STRUGGLING FOR HUMANITY TO SAVE HUMANITY FROM THE DISASTER THAT HAS STARTED IN 2020 AND SHOWS NO SIGNS OF LETTING OFF. WE CATCH COVID, WE CRY AND BEG FOR MERCY FROM ABOVE, FROM THE NURSES AND DOCTORS, FROM OUR OWN MISERY….



STAY SANE, STAY OCCUPIED WITH SMALL THINGS THAT BEAR HOPE, CREATE HOPE, KEEP BUSY!!!



I AM A LUCKY PERSON BECAUSE I HAVE A FAMILY THAT CARES. I AM A LUCKY PERSON THAT HAS A STEADY INCOME AS AN OLD PERSON BUT I AM ALSO A HUMAN WHO FEELS THE SUFFERING OF OTHERS LESS FORTUNATE, WHO SEES AND HEARS THE DISPAIR OF MANY PEOPLE WHO LOST THEIR JOBS, WHO STRUGGLE TO SURVIVE WITH A THE HARSH REALITIES OF 2020 AND THE NEW ONES OF 2021.



HERE IS MY WAY TO KEEP MYSELF SANE AND ASSIST YOU THE READER IN THIS MINUTE WAY:



READ AS MUCH AS YOU CAN. YOU HAVE FRIENDS IN BOOKS, YOU HAVE BRAINS OF OTHERS TELLING YOU THINGS AND MAKING YOU THINK TOO.

IF YOU CAN WRITE, DO THAT AND IT WON’T HURT YOU AT ALL. WHO KNOWS WHAT YOU CAN WRITE, WHAT MIRACLES YOU HAVE INSIDE THAT YOU ARE NOT AWARE OF.

YES, UNFORTUNATELY NOT ALL OF US CAN DO THAT BUT…. SO MANY OTHER THINGS WE CAN DO. PERHAPS YOU CAN MAKE WONDERFUL THINGS WITH YOUR HANDS. DO THAT! IT WILL HELP YOU SO MUCH!!!

IT WILL KEEP YOU SANE AND HOPEFUL FOR TOMORROW!!!

 

CANNOT DO THE THINGS WE USED TO DO!!!


FINALLY, WHAT A CALAMITY FOR ME TO BE UNABLE TO VISIT AUCTIONS AND ENJOY MIRACLES OTHERS CREATED, OTHERS CREATED AND OFFERED US TO ENJOY, TO LOVE AND PERHAPS BUY A SMALL ITEM TO CHERISH. I MISS THE REALITY OF AUCTIONS BUT THANK GOD THE INTERENET BEAMS ALL OVER THE WORLD, THE ART OF THE WORLD AND LIBERATION FROM THE FOUR WALLS THAT SURROUND US, ESCAPE THROUGH THE COMPUTER AND OUR HARSH REALITY. YES, WE CAN TRAVEL THROUGH THESE IMAGES AND WE CAN SEE WHAT WE PHYSICALLY AND NORMALLY DO; TAKE THE PLANE, TAKE THE BOAT, THE CAR, THE TRAIN, THE BIKE AND VISIT IN PERSON, SEE WITH OUR OWN EYES, TOUCH AND SMELL, FEEL AND BREATHE OUR PLANET.

 



ANNUS MIRABILIS 2020 HAS PASSED BUT LOOKING BACK I GET HOPE THAT POSITIVE THINGS WILL COME OUT OF 2021 AND THAT HUMANITY NOT ONLY WILL SURVIVE THIS TEST BUT WILL COME OUT STRONGER AND MORE PREPARED FOR WHATEVER NATURE, GOD OR WHATEVER THROWS AT US ALL.

I LIVE IN HOPE!!!

DUM SPERO SPERO!!!

AS LONG AS I AM ALIVE, I HOPE!!
