The Invincible Summer within us for 2021

 au milieu de l'hiver, j'apprenais enfin qu'il y avait en moi un été invincible

In the midst of strife I found there was within me, an invincible love.  In the midst of tears, I found there was within me an invincible smile.  In the midst of chaos I found there was within me an invincible calm.  In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me, there lay an invincible summer.  And that makes me happy.  For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me there's something stronger...  ~Albert Camus

How beautiful the notion that we have the power to walk through storms with calm and courage.  Albert Camus wrote his poetic words in 1952, several years prior to my own birth, but they resonate in 2020, the year of fear and turmoil for so many around the world.  May 2021 be a year of peace and light.
