New Year, New Colour

Bearded Reedling, 2021

Strange times… Those of you out there that live or have lived in dictatorial nations will recognise the on-going signs: the fear, the distrust, the censored discussion, the bullying, the restricted movement, the resignation, the anger, the fatigue, the numbness, the powerlessness, and the abuse of power.  Those of us who hadn’t lived in such nations are experiencing it all now.  Is it all necessary?  Time will answer that question. History is full of instances where too little was done or too much was done – complacency versus panic…  One thing is certain, there is already too much collateral damage which will come back to haunt us all.   

So I started the year with colour in the hope that it may bring a little smile to someone’s face, in hope that not too many will have suffered needlessly, and in hope that it will be over soon…
