ring out the false, ring in the true

Despite mild protest, our evening included a reading of In Memoriam by Alfred Lord Tennyson. After the critics quieted down, we were struck by how apropos some of the poem seemed. This year more than ever, we agree with Tennyson, “The year is going, let him go.”

We’re ready to “ring out” a number of the things he mentioned, including false pride, civic slander, “darkness of the land,” and “old shapes of foul disease.”

May 2022 be marked by peace, a larger heart, and “the love of truth and right.”

Happy New Year.
