“Th’ whole worl’s in a terrible state o’ chassis!” Jack Boyle’s words from Sean O’Casey’s play, Juno and the Paycock, flashed through my mind, pushing aside any seasonal reflections. My blog was threatening to turn into a full-blown thesis on world affairs and the planet’s fragility.But then I recalled a variation on the Serenity Prayer.
grant me the serenity
to accept the people I cannot change,
the courage to change the one I can,
and the wisdom to know it’s me.”
There is nothing else to say. And so I leave you with a collage, toasting the New Year, and sincerely wishing you peace, joy and hope.
