I’m so grateful for the amount of things I was able to see this year. Some close friends and I started a book club to keep us connected in our different cities, and getting back to live theatre for my own enjoyment and to support my excellent creative friends was a massive privilege too. With another year of uncertainty it felt good to rediscover focus in these small everyday pleasures, and it’s a practice I’ll be taking into 2022.

Happy New Year everyone.
