Belshaw's Christmas thanks

Today is the usual chaotic Christmas Eve.

I am not going to mention individuals, but I just wanted to say thanks to my readers, my commenters and my fellow bloggers. You have enriched my life, and I am truly grateful.

It's difficult for me to explain just how important you have been. You have been there when I was down. You have provided stimulation and friendship. You have been central to the very texture of my life.

As we track into the new year, I look forward to working and sharing with you. I am, I suppose, something of an idealist. Yet it is also an idealism based on personal experience. I believe that we start with the individual and then broaden. I believe that sharing is central. I believe that we we can make changes to ourselves and to broader structures and events that can make a difference. My experience tells me that these things are true.

Regardless of faith or belief, regardless of circumstance, I wish you and yours a very happy Christmas and a peaceful and successful new year. I look forward to 2012 and our interaction.

Chaotic? Get organised! I've been slurping through the fizzy wine (French, of course, none of this domestic stuff) since lunch time, with nothing else to do apart from a bit of minor cooking tomorrow. All the best to you and yours,

It gives me great pleasure to reciprocate your sentiments Jim.

Thoughts returned Jim, for you and yours this day.

And I'd rather be surrounded by idealists and dreamers, than their opposites.

Hi Tikno and thanks! Chaotic is not always bad
