The Oxhill News
I have had some difficulty in
choosing a cover depiction for this edition of 'The News'; the
choice has been between a theme for the New Year; which road to take as we
set out on life's path, new every day; or something topical. The matter
was decided as soon as I read Jackie's note - hence 'Postman Pat' on the
front. I recall a real life 'Postman Pat' in
To another matter; and one
which is important to us all -choice! We have (or should have) freedom of
choice within moral and legal boundaries: whatever we choose in life is
for good or for ill so we do have to seek wisdom in our choices.
The Moving Finger writes;
on: nor all thy piety nor Wit
lure it back to cancel half a Line,
all thy Tears wash out a word of it.
So writes Omar Khayam in the
Rubaiyat -whatever is said can not be unsaid and the written word once
sent can never be erased. We need to make our choices wisely, for the
future really is unknown and there is only one 'Constant' in the scheme of
things as Archbishop Rowan Williams pointed out in his New Year Message,
and which is reflected in the first of our January 'Thoughts.' It is not
so much which path but who 's.
Tony Eastaugh's article, What's
an AED? is informative and is one of encouragement to have worthwhile
self-help in the village: it relates to this matter of choice.
Following the gift of £170.00
raised by the Carol Singers as a present to help people affected by rural
stress I enclose information about the fund which was supported.
Finally, I apologise for the
lateness of this January edition of The Oxhill News: just as well,
however, because Jackie's round robin came in time for people to 'do'
something about it, and I received the letter from the Trustee of the
Addington Fund only today (Jan.11th).
Copy for the February
edition should be received by Monday, 27th January at the very latest
