“Nothing is worth more than laughter. It is strength to laugh and to abandon oneself, to be light.” This quote from Frida Kahlo is our district calendar quote for the month of December.
December & Collaboration - ‘Tis the season of light. We send and receive messages to be merry and bright. We light holiday candles for Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas, Winter Solstice; decorate with twinkles and sparkles that light up the nights; and come together in collaborative December celebrations across our community. It is important to reflect not only upon the love and light around us but also the loss or less that people around us may feel especially at this time of year. And it is important to laugh. I wish for laughter- together with friends and families - to lighten our days.
In the spirit of light and collaboration, I share this bit of inspiration from Angela Y. Davis, for truly, I find that “It is in our collectivities that we find reservoirs of hope and optimism”.
As we close out 2022 and welcome in the new year, may you find a bit of optimism through laughter that fills the air and may your hearts and homes be light.
