Year of the Quarantine- Covid Crisma @Conexion Dec. 2020

December edition of Conexion, the bilingual newspaper of North Florida. This is Babushka's article.

HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!
 Diciembre. 2020. Wow and Woah. Like every year, lleno de ups and downs. Like every year, things lost and learned. Like every year, we agonize the dragout of days, pero al final we think how quickly it all went. 2020. Like every year, pero no.

Ahora, in case you’re pensando 2020 has been all bad, let Babushka remind you of how it made us ALL STOP. The tiqui tiqui of our daily vidas was affecting us and our planeta. Nature started to thrive de nuevo, and hopefully so did you and your familia. Slowing down, taking stock of los whats and whys of our lives, el verdadero valor de the whos of our time, all this thanks to 2020. The heightened sense de gratitud for basics, finding alegria in simple tasks, this in 2020. The realization how we truly are entwined with each other, the social goods being done, and those needing to get done. All this Gracias to 2020. 

Y ahora, en Diciembre of 2020, what are the real presents attained? As you gather your gifts and family for the holidays, make sure to say Gracias for todo. Gratitude for la vida, and the fulfillment of the year, to make us stronger in life lessons and gentler in dealing with ourselves and each other.
 This Beautifuls,  is BB’s 2020 holiday wish for All.

Babushka Besos a Todos. Cuidensen.

  1. 2020 was quite the rollercoaster ride. 2021 isn't starting out any better.

  2. I'm glad 2020 is over! Happy new Year! And I hope you had a Merry Christmas. I really like those ornaments too!


Always remember- If someone doesn't see YOUR brilliance, just look at them, smile, and say- JU SO FONI!!!
