Perhaps the darkest part of the darkest year, despite a couple of rays of hope this week.
Covid has begun, once again, to end lives around the globe; the second wave in the UK in full flow and the lockdown about to complete its first week. We had a ray of hope yesterday with the announcement that a vaccine is progressing well.
The second ray of hope was the defeat of Trump. I say defeat, but it was just a marginal one as he continues to have a huge amount of support and his replacement may be better but he’s a very long way from what we need. More worrying is what comes next. Trump was a chaotic nasty leader yet still manages to have support for his hatred, whoever steps into the space that he is leaving may well be more organised and more authoritarian.
But let us hope that these rays are not the final points of light before we hit a dark winter but that they continue to glow throughout.
A belated and blessed Samhain to you all.
