2020, one second everyday

oh, 2020… where do we even start?

as the pandemic started in europe, we cancelled all the trips and focused our energy into launching the new forum and the world postcard day, as well as keeping up with postal suspensions all around the world, saving the holidays (and our plans to visit taiwan) for a better year. we went north a few times to check on the family and stock their pantry. i finally got serious about studying chinese and did the HSK4, over 10 years after the first one. we walked, hiked and drove a motorhome. we didn’t see as many people as we would in a normal year, but there were still boardgame nights, and many video dinners with friends. my hair got short and red. we had guests (and dogs!) for the summer, and they got us into birdwatching. the garden bloomed and gave fruits, the succulent collection grew and we switched to eating mostly veggies… so much happened, and it makes me thankful that despite all the worry and distress, 2020 was still a good year for us — a much quieter year, in which we saw less but got more done. maybe we needed that.

may 2021 bring good things too!
