Wishing you a happy new year!

It has been a busy year, so I'll take this opportunity to apologize for staying mostly silent. We have been incredibly fortunate and blessed this year in spite of everything that 2020 managed to throw at the world. What could be called my 'workload' multiplied this year with caretaking a friend's property, but it has been fun and educational. My reading suffered because of the extra work, but I hope to post soon on several books I think others would enjoy.

In addition, part of the silence came from things I saw on social media earlier this year that disgusted me, leading me to disconnect from the online world. It's disheartening to see repellent thoughts from people you've followed and held in high regard. We're all human, and my tendency in such circumstances is to simply withdraw and avoid the unpleasantries. Unfortunately, it also means I miss the pleasantries. So if I'm not commenting on your blog, please don't take it personally. It's just me.

It can be a magical world, though, and that's what I'm going to focus on in this coming year.

Thanks Lisa. Wishing you (and everyone) the same.

I know what you mean. I have been saddened by some things online, and have lost some friends IRL. Sigh. May 2021 bring better things.
