New beginnings

I think we may never have been so conscious of new beginnings as this new year. Although I feel a sense of relief to have made it through the challenging last year, it is dampened by the sadness of so many lives lost and the loneliness of lockdown life. I was toasting my neighbours in the street at midnight (all socially distanced of course!) and we were having a dance to music blaring from a balcony, yet my thoughts are constantly with several friends who lost close family in the last few days. But enjoying beauty is one way we can keep our spirits up and share the goodness of life!
