Reflecting on 2020

An extended break

It’s difficult to believe what I originally planned as a few weeks off has already grown into 6 months!

Reflecting briefly on 2020 many will agree this has been an extremely challenging year but suddenly it seems it has passed very quickly. It only seems a few weeks since working from home became the new normal.

Everybody must have faced a particularly challenging year. My thoughts go out to anyone finding it hard at the moment. I hope it will improve soon but it seems to be taking a long while for any type of normality to return!

Apologies to those I’ve put on hold

Apologies as always to anyone I messaged when asked to animate their spirit art recently. My creativity suffers when times are challenging. Results improve when fully engaged. I’m hoping next year to reinstate the Charity animation service however at present have decided to abstain for the next few months.

Those of you particularly sensitive to what is going on in the world will understand it’s hard to work while such change is taking place. My way of coping is to take a break and minimise the work and interaction until the energy shifts.

2020 high points

There have been things I’ve been grateful for this year. More time with my youngest son in lock down will be cherished forever. COVID has been a horrific experience at great cost to so many yet it’s also brought about time to contemplate and consider one’s priorities. I wouldn’t have realised last year just how many regular life patterns were really inconsequential once reevaluated. More time with the family was unusual but of great value to me (and hopefully them).

More services in the pipeline

Time away this year has been used wisely. Photo image skills have improved and progress made. A number of you sent me damaged photographs for restoring which at the time I couldn’t do much with at the time. Things are starting to come along nicely so I may offer this service at some point next year:

The photograph to the left is “PROPER” old and damaged. It is my wife Tracey as a small girl so a very long time ago! I do hope she doesn’t read this post!

I knew if Tracey thought the restoration work was good I was convincing my most honest critic. Tracey is very pleased with the result. At her advice, I’ve shared and with more practice may start doing some for other people next year.

Photograph colourisation

Another process that has particularly caught my imagination is recolourisation. Photographs are converted to black and white and then parts are recoloured to really bring them to life. The photograph below is my only attempt so far but there’s potential in my opinion:

A few quick thank you messages

As the festive period fast approaches I would like to extend my thanks to all of you that visit my site. More will be added to it next year as I’ve many articles and experiences to share.

My very grateful thanks extend to:

Andrew Codling – Medium & Tutor (and someone that has helped me avoid totally withdrawing under a rock this year). Highly recommended and available for online tuition via ZOOM. An open honest transparent and simplistic approach to mediumship (that works).

The Sacred Lightspace – for the best and most accurate guidance reading with cards I’ve probably ever had. You’ll need facebook to click on the link.

All those that have supported Portrayals and our Little Princess Trust fund raising page again this year. Thank you so much. I can’t do this with out you and they do such great work.

To all those that have managed to find new ways to shine bright in their truth during this difficult year, thank you. To the cherished mediums, readers, healers, musicians and tutor friends that have adapted to the current times to ensure that the Spirit World is still represented truthfully throughout this global crisis. Thank you.

Christmas and the New Year Wishes

As we start preparing to say goodbye to 2020 and gaze upon 2021 with much hope for an end to many of the challenges this year has brought I hope you and your loved ones stay safe and well. As long as we remain strong in our truth and kind to those that may not share the same beliefs and continue to meet them with compassion I believe there will always be hope.

My very best wishes as always…..
