    I’ve not heard of that composer, but the music’s lovely. I’ll have another listen later tonight, while having my traditional cheeses, flatbread, and herring. Never mind Christmas cookies — now we’re down to the good stuff!

    Happy New Year to you, Helvi, and Milo. I hope it’s a good one, and that you all find new pleasures in the coming months. (I’d wish that your neighbors behave, too, but — shhhhh! We don’t want to wake them by talking about them!)

      Yes, Linda. Good stuff always includes herrings and flat bread. Glad you reminded us.
      The neighbours are all somewhere else. We had the entire compound to ourselves. Heaven!
      All the best to you, and I look forward to all your evocative words and images.
