We will resume our normally scheduled programming as soon as possible
Things have been very quiet on this site since the autumn. The end of November starts a long season of celebration that begins with Thanksgiving and includes Christmas/Jul, Hogmanay, my birthday and my wife’s birthday. Finally concluding around Valborgsmässoafton. I now need to lose around 8 kilos, but it’s a good way to keep the spirits up through the long winter.
I’ve also slowed down because, like a lot of other folk who were there at the beginning, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and reading just to try to figure out how the hell we got here and where do we go from here.
I’ve been reading the following, and recommend them all:
