The Closing Picture

Dear Friends,

2020 - Closing Picture...

When I saw this tiny closed shop during last January in small village in the state of Orissa, I never thought the shops will remain like this for rest of the year on this planet earth!

2020 - what an unprecedented year it has been! I hope 2021 will be better. Please take care of yourself. We are not done yet.

Seasons Greeting! Wish you all better time ahead..

[Please ignore this non-nature image. I just thought it summed up 2020 nicely. The purpose of this thread is to wish you]
Ganesh H. Shankar
Wishing you best light,

Absolutely intriguing!, Ganesh. Looks simple yet strongly leads to many covid-2020 stories.
Yes, we are not done yet and sadly, seems we have not learned much!
All the best for the years ahead, everyone.

Warm Regards.

We can update the proverb " hindsight is 20/20 " and do away with the oblique now.

It has been a strange year for sure. Maybe a wake-up call or a sample of things in store. The chickens have come home to roost.

Hope we correct our damaging ways and pray we still have time to save ourselves.

Wishing everybody a safe and better year ahead.

Thanks

Very symbolic image to show how the year was, Ganesh. The year that taught humans what is important, gave a break for introspection. Learning from this year is important but unlearning is also equally important.
Hopefully coming year will bring happiness to all of you.

Best wishes,

wonderful metaphor . Very apt.

As an aside. I was also curiously noting the styling of the "2" I looked up Oriya script and concluded may be it was influenced by that. So interesting

Wish you all a great 2021

Very sharp eyes and observation, Raj. Yes, I think you are right!
