    In New Zealand we may be below most of you but we get ahead of our selves; here it is Christmas Eve. This is when the greedy speak about the merits of zen as they load the SUV with trinkets wrapped in whiskey-priest purple ribbon. And I read a passage from Flann O’Brien’s ‘The Third Policeman’:

    “Then a certain year came about the Christmas-time and when the year was gone my father and mother were gone also. Mick the sheepdog was very tired and sad after my father went and would not do his work with the sheep at all; he too went the next year. I was young and foolish at the time and did not know properly why these people had all left me, where they had gone and why they did not give explanations beforehand. My mother was the first to go and I can remember a fat man with a red face and a black suit telling my father that there was no doubt where she was, that he could be as sure of that as he could of anything else in this vale of tears. But he did not mention where and as I thought the whole thing was very private and that she might be back on Wednesday, I did not ask him where. Later, when my father went, I thought he had gone to fetch her with an out?



    I wish every Wyatter a happy New Year!

    Hope to participate here a bit more than in 2007.

    Best wishes,

    The All Golden



    As we dig our heels into 2008 I’d like to wish a happy new year to people here too. And to say how refreshing I’ve found this place without having to spend every waking hour checking back. I love the laid back pace and the many thoughtful and interesting entries that crop up, not to mention all those fab Wyatt links.
