According to the Chinese zodiac calendar, 2020 is the year of the “Rat” who typically represents new beginnings. They are powerful symbols of fertility, wealth and plenty, so people born in the year of the Rat are considered to be optimistic, easy-going and kind. Those born in the Year of the Rat tend to live a stable life and have the ability to turn unlucky events into fortune.

During this past year of Covid pandemic tragedy, I recall a wonderful Voice.club short story from member Katy Bizi, “Endure and Sing”, which offered a tale of hope. In Katy’s story, the little rat endures suffering, humiliation, and isolation, but never quits, and never gives up. In the end, this little guy is hailed as a great hero, so maybe her story can offer inspiration as we bring this difficult 2020 year of the Rat to a final close.

The New Year has always been a time for reflection, and to focus on what changes we may need to make our lives more meaningful for ourselves and others. For myself I believe in keeping an ”Open Heart”. 

Expression is such an amazing thing, and the Voice.Club allows us to do just that as a family in our writings, and poetry. But it’s also about taking the time for each other – I have made so many new friends through their stories, poems and comments, so I would like to thank the Voice.Club Team for their hard work in making this possible.To Each and Every Member – Wishing You All …… ”A Very Happy and Healthy New Year”. Eric X.

Dear Eric – Your goal for the new year of “Keeping an Open Heart” is very admirable and I hope to follow your lead. I also agree with you that “Expression is such an amazing thing, and the Voice.Club allows us to do just that as a family in our writings, and poetry”. This year I hope to write more, and scribe more handwritten Haiku, and also stay more connected with nature. Here in our club, we can share the new journey of hope 2021 has to offer – Happy New Year!
