Twenty Ten

I took a long holiday over Christmas and New Year, and went to stay with friends. It was the right thing to do, because I was physically and emotionally tired, and as soon as I got on the train to London I began to feel myself unfolding.

2009 was a moderately good year for me, but I feel very glad the first decade of the century is over. (Apologies to anyone who counts from one and not zero.) It was a hard decade for me, including the death of a child, the end of a marriage and, very nearly, the loss of my whole self.

We live and learn. And we love one another, the best we can.

Happy New Current Year, everybody.

Writ by his own hand this day,
St. Dwynwen's Day,

in the Year of Our Lord Ten Past Eight

I cannot conceive the loss of a child. I am fortunate to have four and the loss one one would break me.
Marriage? That is another matter but still tragic when it goes wrong but as they say (and cliched maybe) 'Love Hurts'.

I hope that 2010 and the following decade is better for you.
