I am spending the last few hours of the decade/year/whatever it is watching Springsteen on Broadway and listening to my Twitter notifications go off. My mum is home from hospital; a friend has lost her house. I am depressed and worried but I go forth into 2020...
with a determination to be the best teacher, daughter, sister, friend, feminist and advocate I can be. Also mother of cats, carer of a dying garden and reader and writer. Let us come together and work for better times. Let’s follow Bruce’s advice and take care of our own.
And let’s burn down fascism and evangelical fervour for end days (and let’s also,incidentally, teach people to recognise hyperbole and rhetoric) and let’s do our best to love, but not unconditionally. Read more. Listen more.
Care more for what’s outside our windows and not in our back pockets (although I know that what is in our back pockets is not insignificant). Care for Country. Listen to the Elders. Listen to music. Welcome change. Exercise compassion, even for our enemies.
Stay till the credits are over.

Peace be with you, and with everyone you love.

PS By “our own”, I mean each other, humanity, regardless of colour or creed. I expect Springsteen does too.
