Happy Holidays! + Happy New Year 2021

We are almost at the end of the year, what a year it has been. It was hard and it was challenging but we all learnt something. I live in the foothills of the Himalayas, The past year made me realized the closer we live to the nature, more fulfilled we feel in life. When we live in a place where you are away from all the modern life distractions, our needs reduce automatically to only the basic stuff. Fewer desires mean more space for gratitude for what you already have. Not matter how your year was, I hope now that when you look back you are grateful for the experience.

I wish you all a wonderful and healthy year ahead of you. I leave you with these beautiful paintings by Astrid Sheckels. Have a happy holidays and an amazing new year!
