Happy New Year!

Last year Facebook informed me "this photo from 6 years ago today was your most liked that year.
We thought you'd like to look back on it."

It amuses me because with a tiny bit of digital copy~n~paste, I re-used it for 2020 and now 2021!

Last year, I began with a wish for "Ma'at to prevail" in 2020. (The ankhs are holding symbols of Ma'at (truth, justice and fairness))! Sadly, I think back to all the times Ma'at DID NOT prevail in 2020. Did my talisman fail?

While I still pray that, prehaps I am better guided to think about how _I_ (and only _I_) can work towards this goal in my life. I can not control the actions of others. I can only control my own actions.

(Am I tempted to add, "And only on the good days!) Would that be a more truthful assessment? But I can aim, EACH DAY, towards that goal. Am I seeking the Truth? Am I speaking the Truth? Am I being fair? (And thereby following that goal, a whole raft of subsequent virtues, Ma'at being the bed rock of them all.)

May Ma'at prevail (chez moi) in 2021!
