THESE are very difficult times for a lot of people, very sad times, very worrying times.

It seems to be the nature of things though that sad and worrying times can bring out the best in people.

It is my sincere hope that not only will the present situation allow us all time to reflect on what is really important and valuable in our lives, but also to appreciate the interconnectedness of everybody and everything on this wonderful planet we are lucky enough to call home.

I’m hoping that people will use this strange time to think about the future we want for ourselves and for future generations, and to realise that creating that future is the responsibility of us all, and that we all have it within us to make positive changes.

Stay safe and well, yours sincerely.
