St Andrews in Focus - Issue 80 Jan / Feb 2017
From the Editor
New years always seem to regurgitate those old clichés about time flying, and all that. 2016 has certainly flown. It’s a year that’s likely to stay in the collective memory forever, because of all the expectations of every kind turned upside down and inside out! What will future historians make of it, I wonder? If only I could come back every hundred years or so to see how things pan out!
2017 starts with a host of uncertainties, which no doubt will eventually be resolved, one way or another. Note my caution! I’m no futurologist (they tend to get most things wrong in any case). Whether you’re happy or unhappy with what’s been happening, there seems to me to be some sort of sea change in the air. Let’s be optimistic and trust it will turn out to be a good 2017 for all of us, both here and in the wider world as well.
