"When we work with love we renew the spirit; that renewal is an act of self-love, it nurtures our growth."
Fugit inreparabile tempus: it escapes, irretrievable―time: its essence, perhaps, is more understood not by overly aspirational words but through our experience of its passage. And here we are, as another year has faded, still strong and moving forward. We are, through our struggles and perseverance, and our communal desires to keep our bonds inseparable despite the challenges of separation and isolation, still standing together. We march forward with time. We grow in courage as we tread. Life, as we know it, should continue.
