A change in seasons is upon us. Reflecting on the summer of 2020, the multifaceted nature of life was affirmed once again for me. I certainly don’t need to rehash the fact that this summer was different from what any of us had planned. There was bending and breaking, sorrow, and joy—each of us embodying the chaos in different ways, each of us finding our way through, each of us growing and being stretched through the struggle.
Though this list is far from all-encompassing, today I am sharing a shortlist of what I learned (and in some cases re-learned) this summer in no particular order.
