Shine On

Usually around this time of year, I’m up to my ears in invites for Art Week events, charity galas, holiday parties and New Year’s Eve celebrations.

”The unpredictability of life has hit everyone around the world almost simultaneously and we are all left feeling stronger, wiser and more grateful than we ever imagined possible.”

This year it’s a little different. Virtual museum tours, online galas and Zoom hangouts are top of mind. So many questions remain as we dive into these uncharted waters: Will families be able to unite IRL for holiday celebrations? If we get invited to a party, do we go? What precautions should we take? Is FOMO still a thing? As our social media feeds start filling up with holiday memes and New Year’s resolutions, we are surely getting into the holiday spirit a little differently this year. Whether you decide to venture out or to hunker down at home, one thing remains certain: No matter where we are when the world begins to celebrate, we will not be alone because it’s becoming more apparent as the weeks and months roll by that the world is more interconnected than ever and a Renaissance is just on the horizon.
