We hope for better times in 2021, as we do with every New Year. That is the optimism of the human spirit.
I wish those who have stopped by Ebb Then Flood this year every happiness and success (however you may define those things) in 2021. I am hugely grateful for those who viewed, liked and commented on my images and musings, and who also inspired me with their creativity.
“Every beginning is a consequence – every beginning ends something”
– Paul Valery
So, new year, new decade.
We will celebrate the New Year, as humans are wont to do with anything new.
Sometimes we start something new, without realising it has drawn a line with the past.
And vice versa – we can be so obsessed with ending something, that we fail to grasp that we have moved into a new phase.
Also, sometimes there is an end without an apparent “new” thing. That’s alright. A time of transition, awkward as it can be, may be infinitely valuable and is in fact essential. Not that the world will necessarily understand if you find yourself in a place of apparent nothingness.
Remember, in nature there has to be a fallow time before verdant growth.
Anyway, Happy New Year, wherever you find yourself !
