Notes from Steve

December 26, 2022

Next year 2023 - will be our year of “BE”.*  Our theme will take on the theme by the active “to be”** - and take on the honey/bumble bee as our slogan.  (I am way too excited about this …)  I contemplated a new tattoo of a honey bee on my arm; I may do this. 

Over the weekend - I was thinking about the “BE” songs, and what messages they conveyed to me.  The lyrics of “Let It Be” by the Beatles (written by Paul McCartney) came to mind. 

Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom
Let it be

The words if seen passively, potentially come across as “it’s fine, whatever”.  I choose to hear them differently though.  I remember talking to a friend who claimed to be a witch (this was decades ago and she was fascinating).  I said something cynical and negative, and she said “don’t put that out to the universe!!!  Now it’ll happen!”  For 2023, I want to will words of wisdom into the universe - not like win the lottery*** - but more along the lines of Let It Be “graceful” or Let It Be “compassionate” or Let It Be “exciting/enthusiastic/energetic” …

Let It Be in ’23.

*I will “BE” in ’23 - all sorts of fun slogans!!

** “or not to BE - that is the question” … see?!?

***it doesn’t work, I’ve tried.
