Dawn breaks. Finally. Collective sigh of relief. But no time for rest. World to rebuild. Life to return to. Parties in 2021? Shimmer of sequins dug from far flung closets. Tunneling towards the light. We keep digging to the beat.

Dark at 4:30. Winter quasi-emo. Cold. Glimmers of hope. Reminders of Summer 2020 2019. Get lost in the beat. Dancing by yourself. Bops to get you by. Going strong. See it through.

Drinks by the pool. Lounge day. Music to lay out to. Losing the cork to the rosé. White linen looks. Beach, but keep it mellow. Swimsuit or go change. Big work-from-home energy. Did someone make a res. for tonight yet?

Day party. Sunsets + dancing. Lots. Of. Rosé. Memories of Ibiza. International things. Keep it chill. Dancing poolside. Limitless summer.

Dancefloor by night. Sparklers in the distance. Getting lost in the beat. Finding yourself in movement. Good friends and good times. Connections missed and connections made. That one song you go all-out for. Rinse. Repeat. Weekend.
