SEASON’S GREETINGS


star

One thing I love about coming to look at blogs from people I have never met, (having seen photos of only a few), mostly unaware of your religious beliefs or political persuasion, and not knowing your wealth or position, is that in some strange way I do know you all.

We are a cross-section of our civilisation, making the same mistakes, regretting them, hoping not to repeat them, and with all the same longings and hope for the future, as generations before us.

There are, no doubt, other groups of people with a quite -different set of references as to how they conduct their lives. We might call these references alien, and maybe they are, but at this time, when a great hope can spring from a tiny event, in an insignificant town in a far-away country, to lowly parents, maybe we can hope that in this coming year we can see or do something which might well turn the tide of history (even in a small way).

A HAPPY SEASON TO THOSE OF ALL BELIEFS, OR NO BELIEFS, AND A HAPPY (IF NOT NECESSARILY VERY-PROSPEROUS) NEW YEAR.

  1. I think perhaps not knowing actually means having fewer prejudices. Many people judge people not on who they are but what they have. I feel that blogging is a great equaliser.
    Thanks, and to you too! Cheers.

  2. So, so true isn’t it?

    Coming from such different back grounds, ages, lives, etc. it’s great that we all can come together in a blogging community and share those experiences.

    Merry, Merry Christmas to you and your family. And all the best for 2009.
