It’s New Year’s Eve. 2016 is finally coming to an end. On a public level, 2016 has not been the greatest. We have lost a lot of loved celebrities, the US has elected a vile, hateful lowlife as a president and the UK has voted to go back to the 1950s during the Brexit referendum. The world has stood idly by while Syrian civilians have been bombed into oblivion and there have been more bombings and acts of terrorism than I would like to recall.

Christmas spirit

It’s almost Christmas! Seasons of mist and mellow fruitfulness. Oh no wait, that is autumn. ‘T is the season to be jolly. That’s the one.

So I haven’t really been writing much. I find December always a very trying time. Things are busy at work as we are wrapping up the last nits before the New Year. I have to shop for Christmas presents and make my truffles to give to various friends and acquaintances. And in the shuffle my writing suffers. Continue reading “Christmas spirit”
