It’s been a long and strange year….
…and I’m pretty sure there’s more on the way for this coming year.
I wish I were some sort of wise woman, and could deliver a deep and moving statement that would make everything clear, everything safe, and bring comfort, reassurance and peace to everyone.
Alas, I’m no such person, and I have nothing like that for you, or even for myself…
All I can say is this:
In the coming year –keep your eyes open.
Keep your mind engaged. Watch, listen. Pay attention.
This new year might be fine, might be perfectly fine; or it might be the worst ever. It will probably be something in between.
But if things do start going wrong, don’t leave it to others — if you can, speak up. If you can, step forward.
And if you can’t, then just hang on, and stay safe.
To all my readers: thank you. And all my best wishes to you and yours.
And, hopefully: happy New Year.
