2020 (Part 1)


At long last, 2020 is over.

Well, symbolically at least. The new normal it has brought us continues.

But it’s the start of a new year, which can mean great hope.

And of course, resolutions.

And as you may have guessed, one of mine is to start writing at my blog again.


I was very fortunate in 2020 for several reasons which I am very grateful for.

First, I lived in one of the safest countries in the world.

Second, thanks to a decision I made back in 2017, I also lived in one of the safest parts of this country.

Third, I had a job.

And finally, despite some gnawing by the black dog from time to time, thanks to what I had previously experienced and learned about living with depression and other problems, I was able to keep calm and carry on.

It wasn’t always easy, but I got here.

And as with my previous life experiences, there was tremendous help from others.


Until next time, stay well and take care 🙂
