When I do my exercise, I always look to move with beautiful music, and sometimes in my rambles through YouTube I come across little gems! Who knew that fencing moves informed the beginnings of classical ballet or that chess emerged out of a desire to settle disputes without bloodshed? Imagine what kind of world we will have when conflicts are resolved with sporting competitions. Better to live in the art of the possible!

One of the most valuable talks I have ever heard and aligned with the principles of The Beloved Equation too. When my father got a serious diagnosis of lung cancer, we used to joke about his tumor, because it didn’t feel good to be angry or sad or fearful… Those emotions take a lot of energy and don’t accomplish much. So every day, we would simply say “Up and out!” And it made us laugh! He ended up with one lung but made a full recovery and enjoyed the rest of his life.

What 2021 taught me: Home family and friends are everything. Work and the people l work with, make life better every day. Last year, my goal was “to thrive” and l did, in the darkest of times. I got to illustrate and create in so many ways and it kept me going.

In 2022, the watchword that comes to mind is “connect”, something l now look forward to like never before! The Beloved Equation is dedicated to some of the people I feel most connected to in my own life. I hope that this story inspires many other people to connect with those they love!
