As 2022 draws to a close, I reflect back upon the ways in which I have closed yet another chapter of my life with writing about the past and have moved on. I hope everyone had a happy, healthy & joyous holiday with those you love the most, while opening your heart to new friends & giving back to your communities. Here's to an amazing new year! Here's to the future! There's a big new road ahead of us all. -BB #poetry #writing
