Here in the land under the sun, there's a thing we do every day: we look up to the sky to see what the day brings. I have learned three things this year: that every step taken over a lifetime brings us to where we are; what we practice is what we become; and when all else fails, look for the light.
It's Monday, December 21, the Winter Solstice, which is the shortest day of the year and the longest night. In many ways, this day represents an ending and a new beginning.
Today is also "the Great Conjunction" when Jupiter and Saturn - the polar opposites of the universe - will come so close they will appear as one in the sky. Jupiter represents newness and exploration, while Saturn represents rules and traditions. I can't think of a better way to say hello to new possibilities.
It's been a while since I have written to you. Like everyone, I have been learning a new way of walking and finding ways to bring ZÖE through this change.
In March, the whole world tilted, and we became unified by the single focus - safety. Since that day we have walked together, learning new steps, and new ways of being together and living.
This year, we transitioned to a shopping by appointment approach in store during the week, to keep our community safe. On Saturday, we offer "old school" public shopping. We also expanded our online shopping options through our website.
Looking forward to 2021, we are watching as the future unfolds, one step at a time, and doing what we can to be here for our community.
I invite you to follow our shoppable social media sites, Instagram and Facebook , or our online store and blog.
I hope you and yours are healthy and safe, and my heart goes out to those who are struggling. Tonight I will light a candle, and turn my eyes to the sky, with the hope of a bright tomorrow.
Let's stay in touch. Thank you for being here with us.
