A viewpoint from local resident Kevin Gotts.
“It’s a strange ol’ time,” a local farmer remarked. The world has been shaken, and certainly seems upside down and outside our control.
Many millions are working under extreme pressure and making a massive difference, while we help contribute by keeping a very low profile.
Our senses, especially in rural areas, have become more sensitive and appreciative of the stillness, smells, birds singing, bees foraging, our neighbours and we are surrounded by a full burst of wonderful Spring growth.
The undercurrent of locals running errands, helping with urgent supplies and collections is uplifting, showing that we are fundamentally a caring, sharing, strong community. Thank you.
And if you have time today why not text, phone or email a neighbour, friend or absent relative and wish them well.
We shall get beyond this season of testing and uncertainty.
A major faith proclaims today that “He (Jesus) is Risen”, a depiction of resurrection from darkness to light.
I believe that Hope will win through.
