Did I hear Truth, Facts, talk about Light, Care and Courage? Did I see people smile, fully motivated and committed, ready to flush away falsehood .. and install the force of Consciousness? What a wonderful January the 20th that was, that Inauguration Day of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, the new President and Vice President of the United States of America.

This first month of the year here in south France has seen mild weather, taking me to my favorite spots of the city and the Calanques. Many people choose the Outdoors as the best remedy against the pandemic blues. How to deal with a broken up habitual life? Maybe we get experienced in inventing new ways of living.

What was that about, those past four years? The air is filled with inspiration yet quite some people prefer to see the Reality upside down. I watched the documentary The Factory of Fake News, the conspiracy theories are so fantastical that it is difficult to grasp how people can believe such stories. However, a 22-year old poet speaking at a presidential inauguration about Light, … that is inspirational.

We will rebuild, reconcile and recover…

The new dawn blooms as we free it.

For there is always light, if only we’re brave enough to see it.

If only we’re brave enough to be it.
