24th January 2020
The turning of the calendar as we greet a New Year is often a significant time for many of us as we relish the idea of a blank page, fresh start and all the possibilities the year ahead affords.
Then, just once every ten years, the turning of the calendar sees us greeting not just a New Year, but also a new decade and so it is with the New Year that is now upon us!
In September ’19, an email from Janine at Uppercase Magazine came across our desks that made us think a little differently about this New Year…
‘As we turn the calendar over to a new decade and enter the year 2020, I’d like to pause for a moment to reflect on our past and imagine our future.’
Janine went onto challenge us to think about our creativity, reflect on the past and consider what has shaped what we make and do. She also encouraged us to imagine what our path of craft, creativity, making and design might look like going forward.
Many of you will be familiar with the saying that hindsight is 20/20 meaning that it’s easy for one to be knowledgeable about an event after it has happened. You may also be aware that perfect vision is often termed as 20/20, so it would seem 2020 is the perfect year to set the time aside to do exactly as Janine suggested!
May 2020 be the year that hindsight allows us to make sense of our past and dream with perfect vision about what lays ahead…
