We are off visiting with friends in southern Germany. Snow has fallen.
All the exploded firecrackers from the New Year’s Eve celebration have left a slaughter field of debris behind. It was marvellous last night to see everyone out on the streets and in front of their homes letting off the firecrackers. This morning, on my walk, navigating my way through the multitude of plastic pieces or pappy lumps of cardboard, I could still smell the residue of shameless abandonment.
May this new year bring many moments of health and happiness to all.
