Thought for today:

‘If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.’

— Anne Bradstreet (17th Century American poet)

It is the first day of December, the meteorological start of Winter in the Northern Hemisphere.

A time when our days turn colder and darker.

Astronomical winter starts on December 21st.

This quote seems appropriate for both this day and the feelings about Covid-19.

Will we relish our the richness of our lives more keenly, when we can mix & mingle as we once did?

Anne Bradstreet was a very interesting woman, one of America’s first poets, first published English person in the colonies (as they were).

To be a woman, have 8 children, having married at 16 and moved to the new country and then live to 60 is remarkable.

To be published a poet as well, and recognised for this is even more remarkable.

Look her up on Wikipedia if you are so minded, I enjoy reading of the lives of pioneers such as Anne.
