The last piece of 2022: Christmas art for my mom and sibling. We're all scattered across the globe and frequently have group calls to catch up. At the end of each chat my mom insists on snapping a screenshot, posing for the camera with her best smile ...
While my sibling and I act like the gremlins we are.
This year - and the year before that, and the year before that, and - has been especially hard. I know I almost didn't make it out alive. This season I hope everyone finds a little bit of peace this holiday, a bit of love for themselves, or some time to be with their loved ones.
I hope people find a reason to keep on living, to keep on giving, to keep on going on.
From all of us to all of you, may you have truly Happy Holidays and a Wonderful New Year.
- Athena (Sak)
