Almost 10 Years Ago

Close your eyes and go backward in time with me– after you’re done reading of course. This video from Badly Drawn Boy was the 4th blog post I made back in 2011, which feels like a century ago. The current health situation combined with social anxiety and the need for truth and clarity brought me back to this video. When I looked up the meaning to the song’s title, Year of the Rat, it said: “the rat typically represents new beginnings. They are powerful symbols of fertility, wealth and plenty, so people born in the Year of the Rat are considered to be optimistic, easy-going and kind.” It’s my hope that we can all hold on until we find some new energy.

  1. God only knows how much I need family, friends, fresh air and optimism. This has been the hardest year I can remember.
    Best wishes to all the Rats out there!

  2. I don’t know much about the Chinese calendar son , but I know when you were born I said you looked like a pirate, and you’ll always be my pirate ; the har-har-hardiest of ‘em all.
