THE PERFECT word for 2020 is " Anno horribilis" { Horrible year}.

In Her Christmas speech, our Queen said:"... a year that has necessarily kept people apart... ".

In the same sentence she said:"... Remarkably... in many ways brought us closer... ".

No doubt, we have a greater appreciation for each other and work together like never before.

This is something we will all need after Brexit.

We have a bit of a culture change, perhaps the birth of " The Big Society" ( Dave Cameron's speech in 2004).

This is a mystery, out of bad things, good ones come about.

As a New Year resolution, hold unto the good an pray for " Septem Annos Fertilitatis" {Good years} to ensue.
