May I wish you a happy New Year despite lurking lurgies! Clearly there are changes in the offing. I would wish that all your plans might go smoothly - except that we all know that is not realistic. So I would wish you the courage to deal with the rough along with the smooth - except that I believe you already have that courage in spades. Perhaps, then, I should wish for you that your admirable courage will never fail, and that there will always be friends and loved ones to support you in whatever the year might bring. Get well soon.

best wishes for good health, good kindred spirits and good dogs in 2014. I was interested to see you've been viewing Breaking Bad. I feel like I'm one of the last to see this and I must get to it soon. I hear good things about it but I just seem to run out of time. anyway, I hope that the bug lasted no longer than the series.

Dear Boots
First a happy, healthy and better new year to you and yours. You deserve it. Your family and your four-legged ones are lucky to be around you.
At Christmas I met your good friend Chris and suggested she should write your life story as a novel and you should writer hers...
In our world we love Christmas cake which is called up here 'spice' which is probably a medieval survivor.
I agree with your assertion about focusing on the'good things' but sometimes wonder if the 'things to be done' are the things that ultimately keep us going. Love and respect

Thought for life

  • The House of Breath, William Goyen
    We are the carriers of lives and legends - who knows the unseen frescoes on the private walls of the skull?

Thinking about . . .

  • Daniel Klein, Travels with Epicurus
    I too listen to music more and more. Throughout my life, music has stirred me more than any other art form, and now, in old age, I find myself listening to it almost every evening, usually alone, for hours at a time.
  • Julia Blackburn, Thin Paths
    I began writing because I liked to write things down. I learnt foreign languages because they seemed to enter my head by a process of osmosis.
  • Joan Bakewell, Stop the Clocks
    I live contentedly alone. It's better that way and I am often thoughtful about what has been and what might have been. There are many like me.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Oh to be reborn within the pages of a book.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Why is it that we lose the things we love, and things cavalier cling to us and will be the measure of our worth after we’re gone?
  • Judith Kerr, Observer Magazine, 22 November 2015
    I don't believe in God. I find it much easier to believe in ancestors. I like to imagine they are pointing us in the right direction.
