As the United Kindom (UK) reaches the anniversary of its first lockdown in response to Covid 19 on Wednesday 24th March many of us will be reflecting on our responses and reaction.

I have sat in the Quaker Meetinghouse each week with one of two others more aware of myself and them. We have watched the seasons come and go through the windows particularly the darkness of December, the rains of January, the snow of February and the winds of March.

But what happened before December? I feel the need to go back to my writings to remember.
