Momentous Eventus: Feliz 2022 Edição!!!

"And now we welcome the new year. Full of things that have never been." Rainer Maria Rilke.

2021. What a ride, huh? Good f.cking riddance… And yet, despite the wise words of the Austrian poet above, this brand-spanking-new year (aka the year of the Tiger) can’t help but feel like it just might be full of things that have been before, and not in a good way. Well, friends, do not despair! Because, as British poet Joe Strummer pointed out, “the future is unwritten,” and, moreover, as the old Russian saying goes — hope dies last. Instead of despairing and to keep hope alive, check out our Best of Lisbon 2022 List for cool things that have been in 2021 (and, hopefully, beyond) and browse our full calendar of events for old and new stuff to do in the Year of the Tiger, restrictions and/or lockdowns pending.

Events for this weekend are mostly either sold out or canceled, unfortunately, but here are a couple of ways to ring in 2022 around town this weekend and onwards, straight from their organizers, if you so choose:

Be safe, be sane, be well, be kind, be patient, but, most importantly, be yourself — on any given day, night, or year — and everything else will most likely be ok. And, as you write (or ponder, or just ironize) your future in the form of New Year’s resolutions these coming days and weeks, remember the wise words of United States-ian poet Ralph Waldo Emerson: “Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.”

From all of us here at Atlas — have a muito, muito Feliz 2022, one and all!
And see you in the future.
