It’s been a while since I connected to the hive (no internet, no phones = bliss), hence the belated New Year greetings.
My break is coming to a rapid end. Found a great 2nd hand bookshop on the island with some amazing tomes including Colette’s collected works and a biography which I am reading on Gertrude Bell by Janet Wallach. Too apt, considering what is going on in Iraq and the current invasion of Gaza.
May this new year bring us closer to peace of mind and peace on earth. And may common sense prevail in these trying times.
