Gems will restart in January, 2018.
If you want to continue, no need to do anything. If you want to opt out, send me a note, like  “Go away!” and I’ll take your name off the list.
The theme for January will be “connection.”
If you have any quotes, photos, paintings, drawings, sketches, anything creative you want to share that relates to connection, please send it to me and I’ll feature it in January on our under1000skies site, on Instagram and on Twitter.
800+ Years of Gratitude
Meanwhile, I’ll be hosting 21-day challenges on Kindspring for three weeks out of every month from now until my 878th birthday.  All welcome. Hosting is easy, most are set up.  As I get stronger, I’ll incorporate the challenges I wrote during the “300+ Days of gratitude” in 2015.  We reached our goal and got to Day 300 in January 2016.  This challenge series is called “300,000+ Days of Gratitude.”  http://www.kindspring.org/challenge/join/1547
I look forward to restarting and reconnecting, and I hope you do too.

About Albert Camus

Albert Camus (1913-1960) was a French philosopher who, in 1957 at age 44, received the Nobel Prize for Literature — the second youngest ever to do so.  (The youngest was Rudyard Kipling at age 42.)  Camus’s “…views contributed to the rise of the philosophy known as absurdism. He wrote in his essay The Rebel that his whole life was devoted to opposing the philosophy of nihilism while still delving deeply into individual freedom.”
