At this time of year, I usually put up an image like this one, and wish everyone a Happy New Year.
However, 2022 doesn’t look too promising. There are still rumours of war in Ukraine and Taiwan, not to mention Covid-19 mutating into so many variants they will soon run out of letters of the Greek alphabet to name them with.
But there is always hope.
Hope that no war will happen.
Hope that Covid-19 will disappear.
Hope that extremist politics and fanatical religious zealots will become a bad memory.
So I am wishing everyone a Hopeful New Year instead.
Best wishes to you all. Pete.
