"Hope Smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering ‘It will be happier;’" (Tennyson, The Foresters)
2020 has been a truly memorable year and actually I have personally quite enjoyed it. That has not been true for everyone though, and most people will be happy to consign this year to history.I have had great conversations with friends by phone, zoom and letter. I've tried new recipes. I've scanned most of my photographs and decluttered a lot. I've knitted, sewn, crocheted, read. I've enjoyed my garden and my home.
But for me the most important thing is that I have sorted a lot of mental and emotional debris. I feel ready for 2021 to be the first year of the rest of my life - once I have had my vaccination!
Come, my friends, t'is not too late to seek a newer world" (Tennyson, Ulysses)
