The year is nearing its end, and I’m happily surrounded by yule and mistletoe, which are welcome alternatives to my usual winter diet of disrupted sleep and unfettered depression. This time, I’m lucky enough to have a crackling-hot partner and an adopted family to mitigate the sting of December’s cold, dark hours. Maybe my opinion of this twelfth and final month is starting to change, after all.
I’m an extremely avid consumer of most forms of media. Blogs, online newspapers, print magazines and novels top the list, followed closely by films shown in independant theaters and less closely by Youtube videos of the political and comedic persuasions.
