The Epistle of Q — Chapter 189

2024 — Sometimes it’s okay to be nice at the beginning of a new year…

HAPPY NEW YEAR and may 2024 treat you better than you were treated by 2023.

Celebrate winter
Enjoy your home
Smile as often as possible

As for me,
as Glenn Yarbrough has sang:
dreamers never change
dreamers never grow

My next chapter will be more biting. It will give you something to chew on. At this moment I just want you to know that you are special in my life. You bring joy and a sense of liveliness to me just by reading these musings (or perchance, ramblings). By being with me to start the year, I have hope that we can continue the conversation on a more regular basis in 2024. I am making the commitment now to reflect or pontificate (or perhaps both) at least on a weekly basis throughout this year.

I am not doing so because I want you to like me. As Avery Toller says in The Firm (and I’m sure I have mentioned this before): I take rejection well. If I occasionally offend you, don’t take it personally – I really do like you! If I occasionally annoy you, don’t be surprised – I am told that often, even by friendly neighbours or team-mates! And if I seem lost or confused, I may well be – but that’s just my ADHD rearing its perpetual head!

2024 is going to be a good year for us. We will converse even if only intermittently and often without the other knowing it. That is what makes this editorialog so intriguing. We can rant, muse, reflect and react in the space of our own minds without ever having to type a reply – OR you can fire up your computer (or pen & paper) and drop me a line letting me know just what you think (or what you wish I would think) – or you could even call me to talk directly. And don’t forget, if you want to be reminded when I write, you can sign into the portal for head’s up notifications
