Fare Well and Happy New Year

In these most difficult of times, let us look to the silver linings behind the clouds. The community spirit, the care, the love, the creativity, the will to do things differently and better.

Here’s a beautiful and moving example: a new poem written by Scots Makar Jackie Kay, showcased through twinkling drones dancing over Edinburgh skies. Jackie writes about the way that the air carries airs, music, the virus, chants and hymns.  Despite the trauma of the months gone by, we can and must still hope. Hope for the future, hope for a new year and hope for each other. You can watch parts one, two and three on YouTube, or via the EdinburghsHogmanay.com website.

Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year, and much peace, health and love in 2021. 💙

  1. A very happy New Year to you, Liz! The Oxford/Astrazeneca vaccine is my beacon of hope, not just because it signals the end of this miserable pandemic but because of the way it’s been achieved and its aim of affordability for developing countries.

  2. Thank you for sending this, Liz. I saw glimpses on the evening news but the full versions are spectacular and extremely clever, while poetic at the same time. I loved seeing the films and in awe at the technology that can be used so beautifully. xx
