Christmas Light

Looking out our kitchen window at night, I look at the house in the next street. They have a small Christmas tree perched on their upstairs windowsill.

Like many, I woke up to the news that there had been deadly explosions in Brussels. Two at the airport. One at the metro station near the heart of the European Union. Isis have claimed responsibility. Another coordinated attack. Paris attacks come swiftly back to mind. Fear is trying to get a foothold. Its grip […]
