Last year, I came across an app called 1 Second Everyday. The app is based upon the principle of chronologically recording one second of your life, via the camera on your phone, each day for an entire year. The app allows you to edit a one second snippet from any video you have recorded during the course of the day. The idea is to record a video from your own perspective, as you experienced it, almost as if from your own eyes. This results in a six-minute video of your year, capturing your experiences and the people in your life.
This year, Christmas Day fell upon Sunday, the Lord’s Day. These are two days which are considered very important to the majority of people living on my own native Island. One of the days is observed once a week, whereas the other is observed once a year.
As we draw to the end of another year, there is no doubt that, above all else, 2016 will be remembered for the seismic changes, which have taken place in the political realm. Many have been shocked and disturbed at the developments, whereas others have hailed 2016 as the year of political revolution.
Political upheaval has dominated, as the UK voted to leave the European Union in June and Donald Trump was elected as the 45th President of the United States of America in November. Some speculated, centring on Western politics and the EU in particular, as to which nation might next be impacted with political change.
