2012 HAS ARRIVED.

THE YAAN.

The sun is shining at last. The night was interesting. I went to bed early-ish and was woken by fireworks going off down at the Point. Its only about 200 metres from here, down a  dirt track beside the River. I’m pretty sure they were illegal fireworks but I think they are FAR better than all the big commercial displays.  I am still letting things sleep through the crossover of the Two Years and taking a real emotional and mental holiday.

Ring out old shapes of foul disease,
Ring out the narrowing lust of gold ;
Ring out the thousand wars of old,
Ring in the thousand years of peace.
