Phew what a year….! A few highs and a few lows is the only way to describe 2021. It’s been like taking a road trip in an old banger – stopping for the odd lay-by picnic, but just as you’re getting up a bit of speed – another breakdown in some unfamiliar place and all the grief that comes with it. Recently we wrote to all the members of Southampton Sight asking them if it was too early to reflect and comment on the on/off state confinement we have endured since March 2020. Well, we called that one a bit early as today we enter the ‘Omicron’ era! The stress now is the mountains of Christmas food and the lack of people to eat it.
So, as the booster jab of Time meets the pandemic of Eternity and the Omicron of Destiny meets the face mask of Fate it only remains for us to bring to mind all our wonderful members, family and friends, remembering especially those who have passed on during these unprecedented times, and to wish you all a Happy Christmas and a virus-free New Year.
