Saturday … Happy New Year!
I am struggling to start this post as I find myself looking back on last week that are difficult to describe; only those who have experienced the ‘empty nest’ feeling will understand. The whole business is fraught with highs and lows and of course that mixed that with Christmas; another of life’s ‘syndromes’ the angst has been doubled. So you will appreciate for me to discuss with honesty will be impossible or the length of War and Peace. The bottom line will be that actually all things considered it was a pretty damned good Christmas. Also the parcel arrived (with a hefty import charge!) and the ‘opening’ will be on Monday, in the new home (my daughter moved to a new house in the favela this week) with some fine sparkling and Skype Hurrah! So back on the journey.
Happy New Year!!
The parcel doesn’t know its lateness,
cannot tell of its loneliness or despair.
Nor of its comfort or delight
It is a surprise!
