Diann is back to podcasting again after a 6-week hiatus and I'm writing goals for 2021. First, in order to look forward, I needed to look back to 2020...briefly, at least. This podcast does that: I look back and then talk about my 2021 goals with an eye to encouraging you to write your goals for 2021.

Among all the crushing images I saw at the Auschwitz-Birdenau Memorial and Museum, it was the hair that had the most immediate and lasting effect. Actual hair sheared  from the heads of every man, woman, and child prisoner; disinfected; wound in balls; and placed in net bags.  I saw a roomful of this hair, discolored by the years, but unmistakably human brown, gray and white hair.

My recording, I admit, was very emotional, but important for me to record.  

Compassion for those who lost their lives built up in side of me...but, I couldn't do anything .... can't do anything to relieve their suffering.

However, I can release this podcast so that, hopefully, you will hear and feel my emotions.
