My key word for 2021 is ‘Optimism’. Sounds unlikely I know, but I am not deluded. If we don’t have optimism how can we get through the next day? It’s a blessing, not a tragedy, take it daily, in equal measures, once in the morning and before bedtime, with water. Be aware of the side effects, creativity, fantasia, elation and sheer bliss. We need to feel that everything is going to be ok, not only our own sake but more importantly for all who depend and rely on us. We need to be a sea of calm and serenity, taking and absorbing others anxiety and actually it’s a story worth burrowing into. We all need art more than much else and here we have access to it. When I wrote for the BAFTAs in 2019 no one could know what was to happen, what has happened and know one knows what will happen but at the very least we can be optimistic for the future. Enjoy the fluidity of our mobile photography and art showcase this week, it’s one that I hope, will leave you with optimism too.
