I voted at 8.45am. On the way, I saved three snails from an unfortunate fate on the path to and from both School Run and Polling Booth. I wish, sometimes, a cosmic being would reach down from the sky and pick us up when the path that’s being trodden is fraught with danger, but if you cannot see outside your own shell?

Does it matter, and should you care?

Yes, you really should, because whatever now happens in the next 24 hours? I voted for what I felt was right, and with my conscience, and it actually mattered.

Today, therefore, is a good day. As for what’s next?
