I related to Kim Shippey's article "Paradise regained" in the December 6, 2004, Sentinel ["You are exempt from the flu"]. On a visit to England 20 years after experiencing rural life there during my teens, I bemoaned the fact that "it was no longer the England, or English villages, I had known then."

It is the same all over the world, I concluded. It all depends on how one looks at progress, which is inevitable. I have my treasured memories, but I only look at good and beneficial progress now. Yes, paradise can be regained by everyone.

With every good wish to all members of the Sentinel staff for many blessings in the new year,
