So here we are, how many years has it been? Let’s try not to look, not to think about time passing.
Mostly that’s possible, even today, when every interaction begins, as it should with an exchange of ‘Happy New Year’ wishes. What does that phrase imply, if not the turning of another page, the moving on in our story?
Words slip between us, signalling. There’s a lot of space between my thoughts and my fingers flapping at the keyboard, scoring in shapes that might have slight variations between the meaning I give them and the use you make of them. The gulf between us shrinks. Hello, hello, how are you? I’m so excited. You’re reading my words, and for that I thank you.
It’s so lovely being able to meet like this, sharing these lines of connection. As I struggle with that balance between verbose, my favourite mode of self-indulgence, and minimalism to the point of obscurity, my second favourite default, here you are, still with me. Thank you, I’m so glad we connect.
Best wishes for a Happy New Year to you and all of your loved ones. I hope that 2018 will bring you health and happiness.
