This has been a snowstorm!
2020 has bean a heck of a year for the whole world. I still remember thinking about my dreams for it, about this time last year. We always expect a new year to be “the one”. We don’t expect it to be foggy, windy, like a snowstorm that blind us.
From the fires in Australia, to the American elections. From the outbreaks against racism that I simply not understand in the context of the 21st century. Going through a global pandemic that will still have repercussions from now on, 2020 is the year that we will all remember. For the best and worst reasons, 2020 was an intense year.
The one thing that has helped me most to control some anxiety that comes from all these situations (I think we all know what that is at the moment) was to minimize everything. Minimize to the essential in all aspects of my daily life. Even 2020 Christmas will be under the “less is more” mood. From events to gifts, from decorations to advent calendars. At my home, everything is reduced to things with greater meaning. It is sad… but at the same time very, very pertinent.
That is why my 2020 Christmas postcards could not better represent the simplicity and, at the same time, this sensation of snowstorm that we have all felt recently. This year, more than ever, these cards unite hearts: mine and those with whom I will not be able to meet in person.
