There's something about 2020

Updated: Feb 7

There may very well be something about Mary ... but so far 2020 has proven to be the most curious, frustrating, unimaginable, dangerous, almost uncontrollable year in a century - or perhaps even longer. So where are we headed? Some of SSOA's emerging writers share their thoughts here on travelling through the year while staying put:


I’m sitting on a train on a round spot sticker that lets me know it is okay to 'sit here'. In fact, in 2020 I have realised most of my life is now being directed in one way or another in an effort to keep us safe.

I worry if someone will get on the train and decide to ignore the rules. I console myself that I have a mask in my bag that I can put on. I'm not in the mood for confrontation today.
