Changes [Apr. 17th, 2010|10:22 am]
Tony Grist
Yesterday was such a lovely day I got the loungey chairs out of the shed and Ailz and I sat in our newly paved yard- under the shade of the holly bushes- and looked up at the very blue sky.  After a while she went back inside, and I dozed, with my book of crossword puzzles in my lap.

No planes flying, the economic system in meltdown, the catholic church wilting under attack, Russia and the USA agreeing to cut their nuclear arsenals, earthquakes, political ferment, Goldman Sachs getting sued for fraud- is this a freak in the time-flow- a brief cross-current- or are we living through a period of quite extraordinary change?

I can hope for the quite extraordinary change myself.

The first decade of the 21st century seemed very like a continuation of the 20th. Maybe it's only now that the new century is getting into gear. Historians sometimes say that the 20th century only really began in 1914. Maybe future historians will say of the 21st that it only really began in 2010.
