A breath of fresh air

Numbers are down, spirits are up, doors are open and it’s only Steve Hofmeyr’s mind that remains closed!

I declared this the year of flowers – a time of newness, renewal, colours. I stop short of saying a time of celebration…so many of our hearts have been broken in the last 18 months. We remember with respect and grace all the lives lost to COVID-19….and endless gratitude to the healthcare workers who are weathering this storm with us. This has not been easy.

Deep breaths and forward we go into a world that looks a little different to the way things used to be – surely, it’s time to get back on track. Time to notice the purple glow of Spring. Time to hug a loved one. Phone a friend. Get the jab….let’s do this!
