Keep It Going!

You never know how far you can go until you go for it. T.S. Eliot


We’re in the midst of a major societal shift. On every front, our lives are being dominated by a tsunami of disrupting forces of information overload, fake news, encroaching data, artificial intelligence and biotechnology advances; unimaginable even just a few years ago.

And as if  this weren’t enough, there is the pandemic (yes, it’s still with us), the climate change, the economy, the war in Ukraine and the shifting political winds.

The times are demanding, but in spite of the prevailing negative opinion of many, we will get through this period. It’s what we humans do.

Crazy times, for sure; but for the courageous, the inquisitive, the curious, the imaginative a new order beckons, promising exciting advances in every field.

I’m reminded of the words of Saul Bellow, who wrote, “if you think that historical forces are sending everybody straight to hell you can either go resignedly with the procession or hold out, and hold not from pride or other personal motives, but from admiration and love for human abilities and powers which, without exaggeration, the words ‘miracle’ and ‘sublimity’ can be applied.”

We see life not as it is, but as we allow ourselves to see it. If ever there was a time to take a fresh look at everything, it’s now.

Life is a journey. Take a deep breathe. Keep it going…

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected.

I hope to see you again soon.
