The SO and I are going away tomorrow to Tasmania to hide away from the neighbourhood ‘festivities’, so I will be ‘going dark’ pretty much until the New Year.
For those keeping count, this will be our fifth trip this year (we might have overdone it a tad). I know I am very privileged to be able to afford to travel so much at this time in my life. I wish all of you could have such good experiences as I’ve had this year. On the other hand, I lost some good friendships, and a not so good remaining parent, and I wouldn’t wish any of that on anyone.
To all my dear readers, I hope this season is safe, happy and bringing peace. It’s been an awful year from so many perspectives, and all we can do is cling tight to those we care about, and do what we can in our small ways to make life less sucky.
I have a few books going cheap until Boxing day. I gave a few away for free this year, and I will do again. And there may even be a new book, fingers crossed.
Roll on 2015, and let there be peace on earth. Finally. We need it so very much.
