Merry Christmas!

Christmas dinner with the parents, crackers and wine all round; just how it should be!

With a Fond Farewell for the Year


…and this concludes our broadcast for the year.

This has been…an eventful year, to say the least. There’ve been some wonderful ups, and some rather extreme downs. I fizzled out towards the end of the year (as so many of us do), and I’m looking forward to a few weeks’ rest before diving into the new year.

After all, there’s some work to be done. I need to finish editing The Redemption of Erâth: Consolation and submit it for publication. I need to begin the sequel, The Redemption of Erâth: Exile. I want to get back up to speed with this blog, bringing back Tales of Despair, and perhaps introducing some new themes.

And I have books to read. Places to go. Doctors to see about fixing my brain (I’m at the maximum dose of a medication known to cause seizures – yikes).

And perhaps, more than anything, I have people to connect to. I have all of you. Every one of you who’s stopped by, clicked ‘Like’, left a thought…you’ve made this possible, kept me going throughout all of this. Just having that little thought that somewhere out there are just a few people who are helping me feel like I have something worth saying.

So with all my heart, I thank every one of you, and look forward to seeing you in the new year.

P.S. Daily Photos will continue to auto-post; I will return to writing in January.

Christmas Eve: the best night of the year to be a child (or a grown up, for that matter).

Tree decorating is my favorite part of the holiday season. Little Satis and I usually do the job together, with mommy’s help.
