Happy New Year

Hope you all had a good one, as they say, somewhat puzzlingly. But anyhow .. hope you got a few books read/a few books given. Did surprisingly little reading – not because there were so many great movies on TV, although It’s A Wonderful Life at The Forum was – er – wonderful. I think the brain sort of hibernates under the weight of fat and carbohydrate and only surfaces, looking a little more portly, after the festivities have died down, only lingering in the shape of a bit of dried up tangerine peel and a pine needle or two.
So not quite there yet, but beginning to wake up. Reading Doris always helps. Interesting for me as it is many years since I read this book. On the first read, I was puzzled and amazed by the new direction she seemed to be taking, even though the last volume of Children of Violence P1020032was a clue. This time it feels different. Looking forward to discussing with you all – and to another year of great reads and discussions.
