There were good things this year. I was genuinely happy a few times.
But for me and most of the people I've known, it's been an awful year. I won't stop to count the deaths, divorces, legal problems, medical problem, financial problems; an horrible tableau of suffering that even compiling is an incredibly depressing task. It's been in large part a hellscape of a year.
There are good things in my life still. A bad year, even with all its repercussions, cannot change that.
