"though we live in a world that dreams of ending, that always seems about to give in, something that will not acknowledge conclusion insists that we forever begin"

'Begin' by Brendan Kennelly - forever immortalised in Porcelain

The above words from Brendan's poem 'Begin' are both poignant and encouraging, highlighting the need to persevere in the face of adversity, to never give up, to forever begin.

The past couple of years have been a real struggle for humankind. And recent actions in Ukraine are once again threatening us with further harrowing challenges. It feels like the world is very broken right now, but we must remember that we will always manage to 'begin again'.

We have overcome (hopefully), the worst of a global pandemic, and have begun again. The current war in Ukraine is bringing out the best in people sending their support to help those in need. They too will 'begin again'.

Together we need to keep going and never acknowledge conclusion!

We will begin again!
