So long, 2020

And here we are, then. It feels naive to feel too optimistic, as we look back at the horror show of 2020 and forward into 2021. The vaccine roll-out gives some reason to be hopeful, but you don’t have to look at the Twitter feeds of too many public health specialists, epidemiologists or healthcare workers to see that things might get a whole lot worse before they start to get better.

All I can say to you is that I wish you and everyone you know good health and peace of mind. You’re not alone.

Below are links to some of my favourite pieces from 2020. I’ve tended to post in fits and starts this year, my mind often not on blogging but on the various crises tha have befallen us, as well as on my own less-than-ideal work situation. Now I’ve got steady work again, I may be able to get back to more regular posting. I’m minded to do another one or two I’ve Never Heard posts, though, and they tend to take a week or more to pull together.

Anyway, stay safe, and I’ll see you in 2021.
